DIY Solar Projects
With high energy costs and a warming planet that needs cleaner fuel sources, the time has never been better to get involved with solar energy. From a simple solar oven that can cook a roast in a couple of hours to a standalone solar water heater, this book provides clear instructions for sun-powered equipment you can make and install on your own.
You will see how to mount small photovoltaic panels on a roof, bring power to lights in a remote shed or garage, and create a solar still that purifies water without consuming power.
