Pretty good overview of a variety of renewable energy systems. Certainly enough to get you started and then you can delve in more deeply on specific systems you are interested through other resources (but it will give a good foundation so you really understand what will and won't work for you). The only negative is that I could do without the author's very obvious political slant... had I wanted to read about that over and over (throughout the book), I would have chosen some other material.
