Read this from the front to back in a week or so. Overall it was very informative and took me to a new level of understanding, and I would recommend it as easy to comprehend and comfortable read. The book is well laid out and builds knowledge and understanding of the subject in a logical progression.

There are, however, a lot of repeated paragraphs, (probably to facilitate readers who just skim to specific chapters they are interested in) and the main example used throughout the book was not akin to what I was looking forward to achieving. That said, I am much clearer on what I can and cannot do.

This gives an excellent, impartial account of the subject in a well ballanced way. It will appeal to readers with some (or even significant) technical knowledge. Diagrams and illustrations are of a particularly high standard and the author clearly believes in continuous improvement. It is well worth buying.

Great book for a novice or beginner who wants to build a solar power system.
Not very technical, but still contains a lot of useful information for someone considering going solar.
The book contains tons of good information on which panels to select, where to place them for max output, which intervers to choose, voltage levels and so on.

Very informative without begin too technical.

Very sensible. It covers many more systems than most internet articles. Will be important to have back up systems for possible power cuts in 2015 or thereabouts. Required reading for those who want to make use of sunlight to save power bills.

Disappointed that the content related more to USA iinstallations rather than the UK. I was under the impression that the book would provide clear guidance on UK installation methods but the focus of the content is mainly on the function of the individual system component parts. Wouldn't recommend this book if you are looking for guidance on UK industry installation practice.
