One of the best ways to get power to remote, off-grid locations, whether in developed or developing countries, is through the use of solar electric systems.
This practical guide describes how to plan, design and install solar electric systems in a manner that is hands-on, graphic and technically complete. Highly illustrated chapters cover: solar energy basics, components of solar electric systems, (modules, batteries, regulators, inverters and appliances), installation practice, details on planning and servicing systems, water pumping, refrigeration, grid-interconnect, and village electrification.
Substantially updated from the bestselling 1995 edition and containing extensive new material, this is the must-have guide for electric technicians and designers, development workers and anyone who wants to install their own off-grid system.
