About this book

Consumers are clamouring for information on alternative energy; this guide has arrived at just the right time. Practical and authoritative, it is written by experts in the field. This definitive homeowner's guide to solar energy has arrived at just the right time. With the cost of heating oil and electricity fluctuating wildly, consumers are clamouring for information on alternative energy.

This source book covers all the relevant technologies, including solar space and water heating, as well as photovoltaic electricity. It's practical (with cost calculators, tips on tax incentives and advice on finding specialised contractors). And it's authoritative, written by a recognised expert in the field, Everett Barber, Jr., who has 30 years' experience installing all kinds of solar energy systems. Co-author Joseph Provey has been writing about the topic for almost as long. Together, they cover every facet of planning, installing, operating and maintaining a residential solar energy system.
