    Best single source of information on this subject I’ve seen, as a professional in this field. Though perhaps not enough detail for expert system designers, it nevertheless

    covers each item in some depth and explains it on a level that the layperson can not just understand, but maybe enjoy reading. Very good summary of a very large subject.

    Excellent. I’ll be giving them out to my customers. Nick

    I own, consult for and sell items related to Solar Power and other forms of Renewable Energy. I read this book and use it as reference when people approach me about using Renewable Energy. It is a great source of knowledge and the author lives what he wrote about, which is refreshing. I recently ordered another 5 copies to pass out when people order a complete system from me, as a guide to other components they might need in their pursuit of Energy Indpendence. Maverick Solar

    A rather simplistic book., May 24, 2009

    I bought this book at the same time as another very good renewable energy reference based on the “Customers who bought this…” cross sell offered by Amazon. That’s a mistake I won’t make again.

    The book may be helpful to a neophyte in the renewable energy field, but anyone with any kind of background will find it very basic. That the author uses the book to make subtle political statements is annoying. I was looking for detailed information, not political diatribe. I was disappointed.
