The New Solar Electric Home: The Photovoltaics How-To Handbook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The original Photovoltaics How-To Handbook, acclaimed as "the Best of the Books," is now revised, expanded & updated for our New Age of Photovoltaics. Condensing years of hands-on & industry experience, PV pioneers Joel Davidson & Fran Orner tell you everything you need to know to go solar.
  • Chapters 1 through 8 explain the basics of PV, discuss the policies & regulations that affect your system, and guide you in your decision-making.
  • Chapters 9 through 15 examine the components of a PV system--how they work and how to select them.
  • Chapters 16 through 19 offer instructions on how to size, site, install & maintain a code-compliant PV system.
  • Chapter 20 offers a glimpse into the future of PV.
The third edition of this how-to classic provides the facts, guidelines, tips & tools--worksheets, formulas, diagrams, online. Whether you do-ti-yourself or hire professionals. Grid-connect or off-grid. Wherever you live--sunbelt, snowbelt or in-between.

Synopsis:

?The best all-around book for getting started with alternative energy? is now available in a new and improved third edition. Photovoltaics pioneer Joel Davidson and co-author Fran Orner bring this classic how-to text into the twenty-first century. Updated, revised, and expanded, this new edition of The New Solar Electric Home reflects the technological and industrial advances that have increased photovoltaics? affordability, availability, and acceptability. Environmental and world conditions are making PV use more necessary, and this guidebook makes it much more accessible. Condensing years of hands-on and industry experience, Davidson and Orner offer the reader a complete, concise, and reality-based education in PV. In clear and understandable language, they take you through the process of going solar electric: from making the decision to sizing, selecting, installing, and maintaining your system.
