A book for someone who’s actually going to install a solar PV system I’m coming at this as a homeowner and generally handy person who’s up for a bit of a challenge, wanting to install my own PV system on the roof of my Southern California home. There seem to be a lot of books on solar power that are just kind of informational and theoretical and don’t really to tell you how to actually plan & install a system in a hands-on practical way. This is one of the few that actually aims to do that.Looking at a finished PV system sitting on someone’s roof, it is kind of deceptively simple. And the nuts and bolts of installation are not that hard, if you can do electrical work, it’s not that different from any other kind of electrical equipment installation. BUT. The planning and understanding the components is really quite a challenge. The equipment has very unique properties. You have to analyze your electrical needs, survey the site and it’s solar potential, understand the impact of the daily and seasonal workings of the sun and weather, figure…

Detailed and Thorough Treatment of PV Systems This is the best of the half dozen books I have read about solar electricity generation. All the other books I have read teach you about solar systems in general but don’t give you enough of the nitty gritty nuts and bolts details to actually put one together. This book literally tells you what nuts and bolts are needed.After having read the book I’m more excited about the info in the book than the prospect of actually being a PV installer. The trade sounds like a challenging if not overwhelming combination of electrician, electrical & electronic engineer, roofer and contractor.All signs indicate that PV has a bright future hardy har so for those who wish to get into the trade this is an excellent place to start and probably all the book learning you’ll need.

Good Book for Beginers A must for all Solar PV enthusiasts, takes you back to basics when lost. Lot of stuff for NABCEP entry level exam, tI think this book will suffice and also using it with NEC2008 will be helpful in Part II prep of NABCEP.
