A complete guide for home and remote property systems, this book is about using solar energy to reduce the fossil fuel generated electricity that produces our carbon footprint. Throughout it stresses the need for each of us to reduce unnecessary energy consumption before we think about generating more. This can be done by three associated and economically viable approaches: reduce energy usage by doing things differently, reduce energy usage by using more energy-efficient appliances, and, change the supply of energy to non-fossil fuel through appropriate technology. A pragmatic no-nonsense approach to solar energy written by acclaimed Australian author Collyn Rivers, who walks the walk by showing his self-installed solar system on his 100% solar powered 10-acre property in the Kimberley.
