A brilliant introduction to getting hands on with solar power.
on 7 May 2015
This book was bought by someone with some a very basic understanding of electronics and no solar experience.
Project number one was to connect up the shed with a good light and have a power source for low voltage items such as irrigation pumps. The book explained what equipment was needed and how to put it all together. Sourced the bits online, measured everything out and had it fitted in a couple of hours. This is a proper lighting system not something you would buy in a kit for £20. It was very easy to do and all made sense. The key was that the book told me what I needed to get.
Project number two is to specify a full blown off grid system overseas. I feel confident that this book would help me work out how to do a basic survey of the site, work out the power needed and put together a list for a nominated grown up to do the install. Some of the authors online resources are excellent in helping out with this.
Overall it is a great guide for understanding solar and for getting hands on with smaller projects.
