About the Author
Steven Gregersen lives with his wife on a 20 acre (almost!) self-sufficient, off-grid homestead in the mountains of northwestern Montana. His early years were spent in Kansas where he worked summers on his grandparent's farm. He enrolled in the auto-mechanic's course at the local vocational school while still attending High School. Upon graduating he served three years in the USMC. After that he pursued a career as an auto mechanic, eventually owning his own auto repair business. Steven has been a life-long student. He grew up hunting and fishing and, as an adult, added trapping, ammunition reloading, gardening, animal husbandry, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, photography and other skills. He earned his college degree in his late 30s and served as a pastor and Christian camp director. His primary source of income at this time is writing. He's had articles published in Fur-Fish-Game magazine, Traditional Bowhunter magazine, Primitive Archer magazine, Backwoodsman magazine, Back Home magazine, Backwoods Home magazine, and several others. He currently has two books in print and is working on a third. His writing is not based on research but on his experiences in life. He's a "hands on" type of guy. When there's a new skill to be learned he's never content to just read or watch a Youtube video. He has to do it himself. When he writes of homesteading, shooting, reloading, hunting or any other topic you can bet that he's done it himself and is sharing that experience with you.

He has a very informative chapter on, and some interesting ideas about, Reducing Demand.
He has technical chapters on Electrical Terms, Solar Power Basics, Inverters, Generators, and Solar Power Kits. Even though these topics can be very technical full of electrical engineering-speak, he covered all the topics while keeping the examples and terms so the average DYI person should have no problem understanding the information.
Overall, I think this was a very informative book and the DYI person should get plenty of useful information to design a Low-Budget Solar Power System.
Thank God for a great book on solar at long last.
