I review a lot of books, however, this book review blog is dedicated to showcasing books that I find to be different than most other books, plus I feel they are books other readers might overlook on an ordinary bookshelf, but would enjoy reading if they knew about them.

Everything You Need to Know About Residential Solar Energy

Residential Solar Energy

by Vince Hough

I received a free copy of the book, “Residential Solar Energy,” by Vince Hough in exchange for an honest review. See Amazon Customer Review.

As the title suggests, the book is all about solar energy for residential property. It is written for homeowners who are looking into solar energy as an alternative source of electricity for their home.
I am a real estate broker, licensed to sell residential property since 1989. My involvement in real estate now is that of a consultant only and writer for real estate articles and blogs. Occasionally, clients ask about matters associated with home ownership and I take pride in being able to point them in the direction that will provide the best answers for them. Now, when someone asks me how I feel about solar energy or whether or not they should invest in solar panels, I have the perfect book to recommend to them.
Residential Solar Energy is written authoritatively, providing information about:
  • Feasibility analysis
  • Financing
  • Billing 
  • Metering (and whether or not you will save money or make money)
  • Laws and ordinances for city, county, state, or federal government
  • Tax credits
  • Solar energy programs
  • And much, much more
There is a glossary at the end of the book. I found this to be most helpful.
I truly enjoyed reading this book. It is well-formatted and easy to navigate. I view this book as a guidebook for homeowners to keep handy and to use as a reference for understanding the concept of solar energy. If you are thinking about whether or not going solar for your energy source is right for you, this is the book you need to get started on discovering how to do an analysis, how to design a solar energy system, how and where to get financing, the pros, cons, and much more.
