If you are serious about installing your own solar power system then this book is a great place to start. No matter how you look at it, solar energy is a major change in the way we do things. It is definitely a more reliable and efficient way to power our lives.
Still, it does require a major investment in time, energy, and money. Research needs to be done, manufacturers verified, and materials need to be acquired. Keep in mind that the each city government has very specific codes and guidelines in place that determine what is acceptable for a solar system, so no matter which system you decide to use, make sure it meets the local regulations issued in your area.
The good news is that it is relatively easy to install. However, in most areas, for final approval, it will have to meet regulation standards, which will usually require a qualified electrician to complete.
This book is meant to be a basic guideline for installing your own solar power system. From its pages we hope you have been able to determine if this is a project you have the skills, materials, and equipment required to do yourself. Whatever you decide, you’re already on the right track by thinking solar.
