Solar Information and Installation

Installing solar power would at first seem rather straight forward - convert sunlight into electricity. Great!

However, it's not quite that simple. It's not that complicated either, but you do need to understand what the bits and pieces are and how they go together.

This ebook explains this. Whether you have a large house in the city or a small cottage in the country, the basic ideas and principles are the same. You may need larger equipment and more of it, if you live in a larger place, but the principles are the same, regardless of the size of the installation.

With this ebook, all the technical jargon is kept to a minimum and when it is necessary, it is fully explained. You will have all the answers to the questions that have made you a little hesitant , in the past, to get more involved in clean alternative energy production.

The environmental importance of alternative energy production cannot be overstated.
Solar power, wind power and micro-hydro power are non-polluting, renewable and sustainable forms of energy production and their use should be actively encouraged.

An important step in this direction is to have readable, easy to understand solar information available.

Even if you're not going to install your system yourself, it is really useful to have a basic understanding of what's going on and what the various terminology is when you are discussing your installation with your contractor.

Now, with the solar information offered here, you will be able to move forward and take advantage of this clean, renewable source of alternative energy.

Taking the Mystery Out of Solar Power

Understanding and Installing Your Own Solar Electric System takes the mystery out of solar electrical systems and solar installation.
It explains solar power in language that the average person will have no trouble understanding and putting to good use.

It takes you through the learning process step by step, starting with an overview of solar power and continues on with one of the most important things involved when living with an alternative energy system, i.e., energy conservation.

You'll learn about the various components of a solar electric system  - batteries, inverters, charge controllers, photovoltaic panels, etc. and how they connect to and interact with each other to form a complete solar electric system.


"This book is well written and easy to understand for the novice, and the everyday person.

Understanding How Solar Power Works

Now days, most people realize that solar energy is here to stay. 
It works, it's affordable and the positive environmental impact is substantial.

However, many people are slightly baffled by the idea of having plenty of electrical power, without the large utility companies being involved.

  • What if I'm already tied into the regular power grid?

These and just about any other questions you may have are all answered in Understanding and Installing Your Own Solar Electric System.
