I think this book does a really good job explaining the basics and all the components of a solar electric system. As mentioned in other reviews it's obvious by some of the word choices and the locations mentioned, the author is a brit. But that's cool and it gives the text a nice flavor. Each chapter ends in a bullet point summary of what was covered in the chapter as a review which is nice.
I do think that he gets a little into the "green" economic crap with "carbon zero" type stuff that, for me, went in one ear and out the other. I want to install a PV system because its cool, not for some almost religious political cause. But that agenda is not too obvious and it's easy to overlook.
Other than that, the info seems very current and thorough.
I got this for my Kindle, but wish I'd have gotten it in print. Novels and "stories" read very well on Kindle, but this type of book, where you would like to scribble notes in the margins and flip back and forth would be much better in print!
