I have put together an easy to understand and straightforward guide without the sales pitches. The tools in this book will help you avoid many of the mistakes I have seen over my career installing solar PV. You’ll get the information you need to make the solar installation process go smoothly. After reading this book, you’ll know what to expect during your solar installation and what you need to do to achieve the beautiful system you desire. If you use the tools in this book, I know you’ll have an easy and joyful time with your photovoltaic installation. Inside you will find chapters on: How big a solar system do you really need? What’s the best way to pay for solar: Buy, Loan or Lease? What type of solar equipment will work best for my situation? What sort of warranty is there on solar?

About the author
Matthew Myshkin is a NABCEP certified Solar Installation Professional working in NYC and the surrounding area. He currently designs and builds solar electric systems and works as a renewable energy consultant. His solar career started back in 2005. This followed a decade of green building. Myshkin shifted his focus to renewable energy when he saw an opportunity to create homes that produce as much energy as they consume. When it gets too cold to install solar in New York, Myshkin goes to Mexico where he lives “off grid” on a net zero sailboat. The lessons learned from not having the electrical grid to rely on have led to some interesting insights into energy production and consumption that carry over into his designing grid tied systems that really work.
