This is all information you could Google for (and I have) but this short book brings it all together in one place. I'd say the information is pretty accurate. I'd change some things myself, for example, for a charge controller I'd get an MPPT version for better efficiency. Still and all, this book is based on the author's personal experience and that counts for a lot.
Oh, Yeah! Very informative and to the point. I know some things about batteries and voltage, and from what I know, he was dead on 100% accurate. He has given great ideas on what batteries will work best and how to connect everything and run the wires. He also mentions that one of the sources will help you set up a system. Well written, Flows Well even though it has a little "rustic" viewpoint. I easily give this 5 Stars as it is well worth the money. I have read some larger books and didn't get the advice he is giving here.
I like the no fluff approach and written entirely from the hard knocks of experience. Can't beat that. We'll done and recommended.
I found this a superficial approach to the subject. Using DC has its limitations and a discussion of the pros & cons of AC V DC is critical to what one chooses to do. The book does provide some good ideas if one is OK with the limitations of DC.
Was expecting more of a breakdown on what a person can do to start up a solar project. I have yet to find the book that fills my needs and this is one was not even close.
I don't understand enough about the subjects of volts, amps, and direct current. Otherwise, I would have used solar power a long time ago. This "booklet" doesn't cover that information. The suggested products cannot be purchased with the available information given. For example, the author advises the battery used should be a 6 volt, DC 250 by a certain manufacturer. That company doesn't show up on Internet searches. batteries fall into many different categories - and that info is not available in the book. Author advises some batteries put off toxic fumes. The information shared from the author is just a story of how his personal equipment was put together.
A great supplement to my other solar books! It made the technical jargon from my other books easier to understand by his application to a real project.
I'd recommend this book to anyone thinking of going solar. It is easy to read and very informative. Superbly written
