Photovoltaic Design and Installation For Dummies 1st Edition ~ Solar System Zone

By Ryan Mayfield

Sunlight allows photovoltaic (PV) modules (also called solar panels) to produce electricity and perform useful work, such as running electrical loads or putting energy back into the utility grid.

To get started in the burgeoning business world of photovoltaic design and installation, you need to know a few basics, such as the main components in a PV system design, pointers for conducting site surveys, and safety guidelines to use during installation.

Photovoltaic Design & Installation For Dummies gives you a comprehensive overview of the history, physics, design, installation, and operation of home-scale solar-panel systems. You'll also get an introduction to the foundational mathematics and electrical concepts you need to understand and work with photovoltaic systems.

Covers all aspects of home-scale solar-power systems, Viable resource for professionals, students, and technical laymen, Can be used to study for the NABCEP exam.

Whether you're a building professional looking to expand your business and skills to meet the growing demand for solar power installation or are seeking a career in this rapidly expanding field, Photovoltaic Design & Installation For Dummies has you covered!
