Solar power, once a fringe effort limited to DIY enthusiasts, is now fast becoming mainstream, and many home and business owners are curious about solar electric and solar thermal systems, and want to find out how to go about getting a clean energy generation system of their own.  The market for solar systems has been growing at an exponential rate even in a sluggish economy but many are held back by widespread confusion about the technology.  This book clears the air, allowing property owners to move forward with confidence to make their buildings comfortable, environmentally sound and secure against wild swings in energy prices.
