This DVD set is a 5 hour, 19 chapter comprehensive course on the installation of Off-Grid photovoltaic Solar Power Electric systems. It is designed to take the complete beginner to full competency. This is Version 3.0 and now includes a detailed over-view of Grid-Tie systems as well.

The course is taught by Bob Nagy who is the teacher in over 40 videos on high-tech subjects. Bob's bio includes 20 years at the University of Texas, ABC TV, and NASA. His clear and friendly style bring the concepts across so that they are easily understandable. Every idea is demonstrated and shown in actual use. You will learn:

How solar panels make electricity
How to use a Multi-Tester
Basic Electronics
How to solder correctly
Everything about Batteries
Everything about Charge Controllers
Everything about Inverters
Panel mounting and fabrication
Sun tracking
Detailed Grid-Tie Systems Overview
Solar System estimation
Tax incentives – What and Where
System Maintenance

Bob will walk you through each decision you'll have to make when designing a system. You'll also examine several systems to see exactly how they were done. There is as well a bonus chapter on lowering your current energy use by 30% so you can use a smaller solar system and save money. Another bonus chapter shows small-portable solar system assembly.

You might be considering a Grid-Tie system and need to be an informed consumer. The new Grid-Tie chapter gives you everything you need to know to make sure you get the best deal on a system and can also participate in it's construction (or do almost all the work yourself to save money!)

This is equal to what you would get in a semester-long intensive solar power course at a university. That said, it is geared to the total beginner. If you can handle small tools, you can become an expert solar power installer. Invest a small amount so that you'll have one of the most in-demand skills in the coming years. Even if you are only installing your own small system, you will need to know what is in this video course – to do it safely and efficiently.
You will see a lot of very colorful websites offering solar informational videos out there. Most are just quickly produced gloss-overs of the subject. It's usually info pasted-together from Google searches.

If you are really committed to learning to install solar systems, this is the course you need. It is a fully comprehensive series at a very low price. The list price is $79. Amazon has discounted it.
I'm very committed to Solar Energy. I offer personal support you during your solar education. I answer all student questions and am glad to consult with you to make SURE you are successful in building a system. Order with confidence. Together, we will make your solar system project a reality!
