The original Photovoltaics How-To Handbook, acclaimed as "the Best of the Books," is now revised, expanded and updated for our New Age of Photovoltaics. Condensing years of hands-on and industry experience, PV pioneers Joel Davidson and Fran Orner tell you everything you need to know to go solar.

  • Chapters 1 through 8 explain the basics of PV, discuss the policies and regulations that affect your system, and guide you in your decision-making.
  • Chapters 9 through 15 examine the components of a PV system—how they work and how to select them.
  • Chapters 16 through 19 offer instructions on how to size, site, install & maintain a code-compliant PV system.
  • Chapter 20 offers a glimpse into the future of PV.

The third edition of this how-to classic provides the facts, guidelines, tips & tools—worksheets, formulas, diagrams, online. Whether you do-ti-yourself or hire professionals. Grid-connect or off-grid. Wherever you live—sunbelt, snowbelt or in-between. Orner and Davidson provide a complete, concise and reality-based education in solar electricity for your home.
