Off Grid Solar is a pocket guide and quick reference for anyone looking to build an electrical energy system with the free sunshine available to us all. "The limitations to widespread solar are not centered on the cost, the efficiency, or the need for advancements in technology. The limitations are solely due to the lack of widespread knowledge on the subject." With that philosophy at heart, solar and battery expert Joseph P. O'Connor draws from his years of experience to craft a how-to guide needed by everyone around the world. Founder of OCON Energy Consulting, O'Connor has conducted and taught the installation/maintenance of Off Grid solar projects to people and communities as far away as the central African rainforest and right in his own backyard of Oakland, California. For anyone interested in harvesting their own solar energy completely detached from the grid, this is the book for you. Thanks to straightforward explanations for readers of all levels, this book establishes a familiarity with the basic low cost components alongside the most innovative technologies. With this knowledge the reader can make better decisions based on their technology needs, rather than simply trusting the recommendations from others. Need to keep costs down? How many solar panels are needed to refill the batteries? What is the best way to angle your solar panels? On projects both big and small, Joe's got you covered.

Solar energy is a formidable resource. Solar Electric Power systems, based on PV panels, make effective power supplies for your off-grid electricity needs. The sun distributes over 1,000 watts per square meter at peak, and is the natural power supply for life on Earth. The Sun, can also be your Power Supply.The best kept industrial secret, is that we don't need to burn fossil fuels for industrial power. Solar PV panels, true 21st century tools, can provide daily energy production which can be used directly, or stored for later use, on demand, to power your remote electric loads, onsite, with no pollution, or fuel costs.This eBook is written to be a resource in building your own Solar PV supply for remote Cameras, LED lighting systems, Communication, Sensors, and remote Cabin, and Home Power systems, with Solar PV Power system examples.The Solar Energy resource varies with time of day, season, and local climate. Solar PV panels, sized properly, produce reliable, and predictable energy production, despite daily variations, when calculated properly for each month.Tap into PV Panels to charge battery banks for reliable DC, and, with inverters, AC power on demand. Remote site power supplies, designed, and installed properly, offer real power for running a variety of electronic, motor, and large draw devices.Use this Book to match your Energy Load, with the Energy Production sized to match your electric loads for remote Solar PV Power. System examples range from 30 Watt Solar PV Power supplies for cameras, electronics, and sensors, to 4,000 Watt Home Power Systems.
