DOMESTIC SOLAR ENERGY
Domestic Solar Energy h/b
Gavin D. J. Harper
2009

Size: 170 x 240 cm

At long last a book full of advice and information regarding the use of solar energy in the home and aimed for the UK market.
Written in a style that is easy to understand. The author first of all looks at how the impact of global warming is going to affect us all, he then leads on from this into how the home owner can evaluate the energy performance of their home. He goes on to explain the different aspects/options of the installation of photovoltaic cells to a home using solar power to produce domestic electricity and to heat water.
Throughout the book the photographs, illustrations and the explanations are very thorough, from how to calculate costs and assessing the benefits of installing solar energy. If you are thinking of going down this route the chapters - The Solar Resource, Passive Solar Design, Solar Power for Lighting, Solar Power for Electricity, Solar Water Heating, Costing your Solar Installation, Relevant Legislation and even Solar Heating for Swimming Pools will all help with decisions to be made.
To summarise, it is a good all round read for anyone who is interested in solar energy and wants to take advantage of environmentally friendly solar energy, help to reduce energy bills and at the same time help the environment. So if you are an individual, part of an environmental group, a builder or architect - this book will definitely be of use.
The only downside to this publication is that it was printed and bound in Malaysia and it does not state what type of paper was used.
