Practical guide for the DIYer This is a well-written book with exactly the details you need if you are planning your own DIY solar project, or preparing to buy or contract out for a solar power system. I bought several books on the subject, and this is the only one to answer my very specific questions, such as where to put fuses and isolation switches. It seems up to date and gives the names of respected manufacturers.I enjoyed the thorough discussions on related topics, such as the tilt angle for the panels and the pros-and-cons of the different system types (grid-tied, off-grid, etc.) Although I am thoroughly impressed with the contents of the book I think it could be improved by giving examples, with brands and component ratings for specific systems, such as wiring diagrams for a 100-watt, 500 watt, and 2,000 watt stand-lone system and the same for a grid-tied system. I would like to see more too on the new micro-controller panels.This is definitely the must-have book for anyone planning…

Excellent book for those new to solar (like me)! I love the idea of solar power: independently harvesting the largest resource available to us. So I bought some solar panels and then had no idea what to do. After some fumbling around, I got it to work. Then I came across this book. If I had found this book sooner, I could have saved myself tons of time and tons of missteps. The information is clear and has helpful graphs. The writing is enthusiastic and friendly. I can’t say enough good about it. As I continue my journey into solar power generation, this book will always be at my side. Thank you, Mr. Boxwell. How we harvest energy is one of the largest issues facing humanity today. This simple book just might play a part in saving the world – and I mean that.Larry Nocellaauthor of novel Loser’s Memorial, available on Amazon
