Definitely not for idiots, this guide explains how solar power is generated by photovoltaic cells, outlines the different solar power systems available on the market, and offers advice on selecting a system and hiring a contractor to install it. The authors spend more space talking about energy efficiency in the house than providing specific instructions for implementing a solar power system.
