Stand-alone Solar Electric Systems
The Earthscan Expert Handbook for Planning, Design and Installation
By Mark Hankins

'Mark Hankins has done it again. Like his prior publications, this book is a practical, useful and easy-to-read design guide for anyone interested in off-grid solar electric systems.'
Arne Jacobson, Associate Professor, Environmental Resources Engineering Co-Director, Schatz Energy Research Center, Humboldt State University, USA

About this book

One of the best ways to get power to remote, off-grid locations, whether in developed or developing countries, is through the use of solar electric systems. This practical guide describes how to plan, design and install solar electric systems in a manner that is hands-on, graphic and technically complete. Highly illustrated chapters cover:

- solar energy basics
- components of solar electric systems (modules, batteries, regulators, inverters and appliances)
- installation practice
- details on planning and servicing systems
- water pumping
- refrigeration
- village electrification

This is the must-have guide for electric technicians and designers, development workers, and anyone who wants to install their own off-grid system.

Review Quotes

'One watt-peak in a German grid-connected system saves the equivalent of 5 litres of oil used in a thermal power station. One watt-peak in a stand-alone system in Africa saves more than 50 litres of oil from kerosene lamps. This is the right book at the right time.'
Professor Peter Adelmann, University of Applied Science, Germany, and Founder of Phocos AG

'Mark Hankins's name is synonymous with "solar" in Africa. Mark has been a solar visionary, technical expert and project engineer since 1980, providing the continent with 30 years of unparalleled expertise in the planet's only reliable and safe energy source.'
Neville Williams, Founder, Solar Electric Light Fund and Co-Founder, SELCO-India
