Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979161142, Paperback)

Every day in America, more than 500,000 people experience a power outage. The average outage is about 2 hours - and they are getting longer and more frequent.

This step-by-step guide is designed to help you build your own solar generator that will provide clean, quiet, odorless and green energy to help you get through those emergencies.

This guide assumes you have no (zero) electrical background. It walks you through, step by step, how to determine the loads (what appliances do you want to run when the grid is down), how long you wish to run those loads, and how long will you allow the solar panel to recharge the batteries in the generator between uses. You will learn how to pick the right charge controller. How and why you would select a certain size inverter (and what the heck is it), getting the right solar panel, sizing your battery.

We also walk you through the wiring system, letting you know how to safely select the proper type and size of wire and fuses, and how to connect everything together.

And if that is not enough, we even take a pictorial walk through a real world example. Listing all the parts, giving you prices and where to buy them (this 400-watt generator can be built for less than $300), then showing each step in its construction.
