Description

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 - 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.
