Why the world needs Solar Books

For the next billion plus years our Sun will produce over 7000 times the energy we use right now. Because it is clean, free and reliable, it makes every sense to use its energy. Tens of millions worldwide do that right now.

Solar Success (now in its constantly updated tenth year) explains, in detail, how to design and build your home or property systems. It is unique in explaining how to do so at the lowest feasible cost. This book shows you how to slash energy usage (often with improved performance) of all that you have (or plan to use) and only then size the system accordingly. Here are two examples.

  • Swimming pool pump efficiency varies hugely. It is typically 10% to 50% of your total electricity bill. Solar Success shows how to do it from solar alone for a fraction of that cost.
  • Ensuring your fridge is correctly installed (few are) can slashes energy draw. Here too, Solar Success explains all.

Reducing energy draw is vital with stand-alone systems. It minimizes essential battery capacity – by far the major cost of all such systems. Solar Success (and our other books) will save multiple times its purchase price.

The sun–that power plant in the sky–bathes Earth in ample energy to fulfill all the world’s power needs many times over. It doesn’t give off carbon dioxide emissions. It won’t run out. And it’s free.
