The 2014 edition of the Solar Electricity Handbook is a practical and straightforward guide to using photovoltaic solar panels to generate electricity. It is the seventh edition of the book, which has been updated yearly since 2009.

Assuming no previous knowledge of solar panels, the book explains how solar panels work, how they can be used and explains the steps you need to take to successfully design and install a solar electric system from scratch using photovoltaic solar panels.

Accompanying this book is a solar resource website containing lots of useful information, lists of suppliers and on-line solar energy calculators that will simplify the cost analysis and design processes.

Why buy the Solar Electricity Handbook?

* The Handbook is a simple, practical guide to using electric photovoltaic panels.
* The book is suitable for enthusiastic novices for building professionals and architects learning about photovoltaics.
* Clear examples, diagrams and example projects are given to demonstrate the true capabilities of these systems.
* The Handbook is updated yearly, providing a up-to-date reference for anyone planning to use electric photovoltaic technology.
* It is the most comprehensive book on solar electric systems available today.
* It is backed up by the most powerful online calculator tools available, to make your design and calculations as straightforward as possible.
* With comprehensive detail in the book for both North America and Europe, the Handbook provides you with information that is relevant to you and your project - where ever you live.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practical guide for the DIYer 20. Juli 2012
Von Vince Migliore - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a well-written book with exactly the details you need if you are planning your own DIY solar project, or preparing to buy or contract out for a solar power system. I bought several books on the subject, and this is the only one to answer my very specific questions, such as where to put fuses and isolation switches. It seems up to date and gives the names of respected manufacturers.

I enjoyed the thorough discussions on related topics, such as the tilt angle for the panels and the pros-and-cons of the different system types (grid-tied, off-grid, etc.) Although I am thoroughly impressed with the contents of the book I think it could be improved by giving examples, with brands and component ratings for specific systems, such as wiring diagrams for a 100-watt, 500 watt, and 2,000 watt stand-lone system and the same for a grid-tied system. I would like to see more too on the new micro-controller panels.

This is definitely the must-have book for anyone planning a solar power system.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent introduction to solar for the homeowner 13. September 2012
Von Winter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Most of the solar material is directed at the installer and often applies primarily to large scale commercial projects. This book instead targets the homeowner who want to add a a solar system to their home. It has the right level of technical versus practical for the average reader who neither has an EE degree or strive to be an engineer or pro electrician.

I found the information helpful in both creating a solar system for a RV and in working with three companies to get the right system for my house. Without the information I gleaned from this book I would have gotten a lot less system and though I would not have known what I was missing, the added value of the system paid for the cost of this book many hundreds of times over.

Compared to the initial proposals from the three companies the system installed will not cost any more but will provide 15-20% more power over the next 20 years. That is like getting an extra couple of years of production for free.

The book is very well written and well organized and appears to have had a good editor in the process as well. Most people will have no trouble reading it and absorbing the information the author has provided.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book for those new to solar (like me)! 2. August 2012
Von Larry Nocella - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I love the idea of solar power: independently harvesting the largest resource available to us. So I bought some solar panels and then had no idea what to do. After some fumbling around, I got it to work. Then I came across this book. If I had found this book sooner, I could have saved myself tons of time and tons of missteps. The information is clear and has helpful graphs. The writing is enthusiastic and friendly. I can't say enough good about it. As I continue my journey into solar power generation, this book will always be at my side. Thank you, Mr. Boxwell. How we harvest energy is one of the largest issues facing humanity today. This simple book just might play a part in saving the world - and I mean that.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Happy camper! 23. Juli 2012
Von Saved by Grace - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was one of the reasons why I graduated last May with my B.S in Electrical Engineering. Prior to starting my senior design project I had little to no knowledge about solar energy. My project consisted of creating a grid - tied photovoltaic power system for the school of engineering at my school. After purchasing this book I was able to understand the fundamentals of how solar energy work and apply them to my project. After many sleepless nights and hardwork, I was able to complete my senior design project and I recieved an A on the project! Thanks Michael

2.0 von 5 Sternen solar electricity handbook 9. Dezember 2012
Von donnell a mcsweyn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
some general good info but aboslutely nothing and i mean nothing how to wire or put all the componets of a system together
if you are looking for how to the actual system this book is not for you, nothing about amps, voltage of battery bank panels and these interconnecting devices, just broad general info like point units south!!
