    I'd have given this book a full 5 stars if it had been more recent, but as the library only had the 2008 edition, it was still very useful in terms of learning the basics of how to do an energy audit and what to look for before one begins to consider installing solar on one's home, not to mention lots of really neat smaller preparatory solar projects to build experience leading up to the big install on one's house, should one be lucky enough to own part or all of a house. This should be required [...]

    NOT enough information about solarThis guy goes on and on and on about everything but solar for about the first 250 pages. After the first two-thirds of the book he lightly touches on solar projects and then repeats some of the Solar projects over and over. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

    The book I read to research this post was Solar Power Your Home For Dummies by Rik DeGunther which is a very good book which I bought from kindle. If you have a solar power installation fitted in your house chances are you will get a contractor to do at least some of it and this book guides you through the various jobs involved but also helps you find a good contractor. It also guides you through the various options and tries to give you a rough idea what they cost. For some people it can be as [...]

    Okay, so I thought this was a book about solar power from scratch, as in making your own panels etc. Well, that was not what this book was about, but it did give me tons of ideas on how to assure my home is energy efficient, as well as pros and cons of solar energy use in the home. One thing that this book did not change was the fact that solar power is expensive, in otherwords, not for the poor or lower middle class (so, maybe that's why they are poor or lower middle class, huh?).The book did g [...]

    I usually don't got for the "dummies" series, but this is one of the better solar power books I've found. It has both a broad, readable scope (thinking broadly about solar from making solar iced tea to designing a new house to maximize solar PV/water/design). It had sufficient details to be useful and really covered the bases. This won't be your only solar book, but this is definitely the best foundation I've found for your small solar library.

    A good overview. It has calculators to help you figure out just how much a solar panel system will save/cost. I will consult it when I eventually get around to getting quotes on putting in solar panels.

    A comprehensive book about solar power and how to practically apply the theories and the technology into your house, I found it very interesting and educational.
