4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to solar energy.
I found this book most useful for the planning of two photo-voltaic off grid projects. While I am not in the UK (NZ) there was little that was not applicable to me. The solar irradiation tables were essential along with the cable sizes and formulae. Was it perfect? No. I was looking for details in combining both solar and wind turbine outputs but it was not in this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok
This is ok, but too Americanised to be of much practical value. And at that point I need 8 more

An excellent book if you want the answers about Solar Energy. Don't be disapponted if you end up investing. That is what you want from a book the real facts.

Great if you want a cold fact based assessment of investing Solar panel technology.

5.0 out of 5 stars where's the kindle version!! Excellent book., 28 Jun 2013

This review is from: Solar Electricity Handbook: A Simple Practical Guide to Solar Energy - Designing and Installing Photovoltaic Solar Electric Systems (Paperback)
I really wanted the Kindle version but only old editions available so I had to go 'paper'. The book is an excellent resource. I did e-mail the author as the book suggests that you are able to do this to get extra support. I have not had a reply other than an automated one and that was some weeks ago. The companion website is very good, though no purchase is necessary to access this.
