The first — and only — true DIY guide to designing and installing a complete solar system to power your home. I teamed up with solar scientist, educator, and installation professional Joseph Burdick to teach you how to design and build a system like the pros do it. We walk you through the entire process, from assessing your home’s solar potential to buying equipment to installing the solar panels and related hardware. Most of the hands-on work involves basic construction tasks, like layout, driving screws, and assembling prefabricated parts. And you don’t have to worry about the trickiest steps because you’ll hire an electrician for the final connections (which is also what the pros do).
“…sets itself apart from other recent titles on solar by focusing on the basics of installation, a topic severely lacking in the field…VERDICT: An important manual on home solar systems, offering solid advice and instruction.” —Library Journal
