Présentation de l'éditeur

Solar electricity is a wonderful concept. Take free power from the sun and use it to power electrical equipment. No ongoing electricity bills, no reliance on an electricity socket. 'Free' electricity that does not harm the planet. Of course, it is not as simple as that. Yet generating electricity from sunlight alone is a powerful resource with applications and benefits throughout the world. But how does it work? What is it suitable for? How much does it cost? How do I install it? This best selling internet-linked book answers all these questions and shows you how to use the power of the sun to generate electricity yourself. This sixth edition includes more information, with new and improved chapters for grid-tie systems and brings the book right up to date with the latest technology and information. In short, the Solar Electricity Handbook is a practical and straightforward guide to using photovoltaic solar panels. Assuming no previous knowledge, 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 photovoltaic system from scratch. 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.

this book explains everything about solar electricity in a clear and easy to understand format. It discusses stand alone, combined and feedback systems along with their pros and cons. I bought it to evaluate whether to go 'off grid' or not and am still in the process of fact gathering. The book is a great help and has given me confidence to continue my quest. Recommended to anyone who is considering solar electric energy.
Si vous parlez assez bien l'angalis, cette livre est facile a comprendre, bien clair et plein des bonnes conseilles sur le production d'electricite, soit pour vos propres besoins, soit pour le vendre a ERDF, soit un melange des deux. Il m'aide beaucoup sur le recherche pour mon projet et j'ai beaucoup plus de confiance maintenant.

Very, very basic ! No thing I didn't know.
"Photovoltaic Design & Installation for Dummies" has a lot more useful info.

HASH(0x986d1e40) étoiles sur 5 Good information! 29 janvier 2014

I think this book does a really good job explaining the basics and all the components of a solar electric system. As mentioned in other reviews it's obvious by some of the word choices and the locations mentioned, the author is a brit. But that's cool and it gives the text a nice flavor. Each chapter ends in a bullet point summary of what was covered in the chapter as a review which is nice.

I do think that he gets a little into the "green" economic crap with "carbon zero" type stuff that, for me, went in one ear and out the other. I want to install a PV system because its cool, not for some almost religious political cause. But that agenda is not too obvious and it's easy to overlook.

Other than that, the info seems very current and thorough.

I got this for my Kindle, but wish I'd have gotten it in print. Novels and "stories" read very well on Kindle, but this type of book, where you would like to scribble notes in the margins and flip back and forth would be much better in print!

HASH(0x9848409c) étoiles sur 5 basic understanding for solar installation 3 septembre 2014

I felt like the book skimmed the surface of the information I was looking for. I would have liked to have had more detail on tying to the grid and how the transfer of power between the system and the grid works. More specific equipment information would be helpful. It has given me information from which I now need to take and do more research of the equipment needed.

There are so many variables to a system that it's hard to cover every aspect.

HASH(0x98484240) étoiles sur 5 If you are shopping, this book is the place to start learning what is good and what is better and what is bad. 29 juillet 2014

European primary focus but U.S. conversion information which is not going to slow you down beyond some of the strange names or wording.

KEEP IN MIND THAT like computers and phones TODAY'S $700 no contract phone that will do everything but put it's self on the charger; TOMORROW'S SOLAR ELECTRIC stuff will be cheaper better and more available. In 1965 you could have sold your $9 Casio F91W watch for Millions to the person who has everything but a super multifunction time piece that is small and easy to operate CONSIDER THE SNOB VALUE.

All solar books are like refrigerated salad dressing. There is an expiration date and it is the day the words are put into the draft. There will be no up to date book available EVER.
When I needed an education I looked at colleges basic engineering coursed and quickly discovered that they were many years behind technology. SO I went to work for a company that designed stuff using components right out of the super secret components suppliers newest stuff. This was 11 years of taking manufacturers courses and it never ends. 600 million years of paleontology study is overwritten each year. You can read paleontology books 3 years old but they will be proven more wrong daily in Montana China and South America.
This book will help you in BASIC THINKING AND RATIONALE. as well as provide you with direction toward the future.
Knowing the function of each element and the function of electricity when it comes to handling it is critical to understanding what is and what is not.
MOST of the folks who master the simply explained elements of this book will know more than the sales person selling the equipment and the elements are simple to understand. There are some short comings explained below but for the most part this is the book to buy in 2014.
Knowing the limitations of the components as well described here is important and pretty well covered in this book
NORMALLY I only buy hardcover books but as you will see with this book 2015 will be a totally new game played with new rules and new toys. Buy the paper back like this one as next years one will be different in hundreds of ways that are important. Maybe not as well done so this is the place to start if you are looking at this seriously as considering spending money.
For my money the effort is reducing consumption using things like COOL WHITE LED BARE ELEMENT BULBS is what I did and discovered that there is a way to get two for one function with them . Usable 0.1 watt or full on 4 watt light energy your eyes can use.
Setting up a secondary solar system separate from the electric company using a smaller system and using commercial power for the heavy lifting is the way I want to go until the big numbers get sorted out or until my rich uncle forces me to do it "their way".
The Electric companies who's main expense is infrastructure are scrambling to make up for the loss of revenue by directing new rules and even reverse metering to refund your power at wholesale prices while you pay retail prices for KWHs.
ONE THING not totally clearly explained in the book is that electricity is a 4 dimensioned energy
When I entered the aerospace industry the first thing I learned is that engineering technical writers fail to realize the folks using their documents do not know everything they do. When I got my chance I went to the functional test mechanics to see their approach and this changed everything. In nineteenth century Britain the second language taught was not French, It was German. If you went to Germany you had to know the language to survive. Like comparing apples to rocks.
VOLTAGE efficiency usually increases with higher voltage and higher frequency of AC current.
AMPERAGE is the amount of electrons passing by a particular point
RESISTANCE AND REACTANCE Is loss where resistance that exists in all conductors that goes up in heat or refusal to pass current in the case of reactance loss.
Reactance in a coil of single conductor wire is like a tension spring and at a resonant frequency can actually stop the flow of energy.
TIME. is where you get into the hours factor but also is involved in the AMOUNT of heat emitted by resistance OVER TIME. (resistance loss goes up in heat) Keep the power flowing and the loss of energy is not likely to become greater; just the cost you pay.
A current surge on a 70% too light wire for 1/10 second will not be noticed most of the time but long term will cause trouble. Big trouble.
These 4 things are related to success and failure.

I have look into solar energy for a few years from different web suites. This book puts a lot of that together and has more information that I didn't think about. If someone was just getting into solar, this would be a good book to start with and use for reference later.
