Dan wants you to be sure that photovoltaic power is right for you before investing substantial time and money for a system. Obviously you need decent solar exposure, but you also need to be aware of the inherent limitations and complexities of the many components of an entire system. Whether to go “off-grid” or set up a grid-tied system, or a hybrid of the two, is thoroughly examined.
I highly recommend reading this book, even if you don’t intend to install your own PV system, because it will help guide you through all of the choices that need to be made and will help you monitor a professional job that will provide years of satisfying power from the sun.
