Advances in solar technology have made many DIY-friendly products available to consumers, several of which will be hitting the market for the first time in 2011. These include solar water heaters, solar battery charging stations, solar powered lights, photovoltaic shingles that provide supplementary electricity, solar heat pumps, and solar panel kits that generate primary home electrical service. Among the step-by-step projects is a solar water heating system you can build and install yourself for under $1000; simple thermosyphon solar heat collectors for barns and outbuildings; or "heat grabbers" that you can fabricate for $50 in materials and position below a south-facing window to provide auxiliary winter heat.

The do-it-yourself guide for converting your home to solar power Solar energy is clean, efficient, sustainable—and expensive. Or is it? Many homeowners simply assume that the cost of solar panels is out of their reach, but in reality, the technology is quickly becoming attainable for the middle class. Rather than leasing panels from one of those home solar startups (and letting them reap the financial benefits), why not join the thousands who are doing it themselves? In Solar Rooftop DIY, sustainable energy expert Mike Sullivan offers five design plans—ranging from a few simple panels to a complex, roof-covering array—for building a rooftop PV energy system for any home. Each plan has clear and detailed step-by-step photographs showing the installation process. Many of them require no additional labor—just a few days' commitment for the average weekend warrior. With energy costs only set to increase in the future, now is the time to make the switch to solar and start selling power back to the grid.

Literally 4 books in one! This greatly updated second version has four of the original topics greatly expanded with images and information, how-to info, details and Q&A's, and more--over 600 pages! The non-electric solar topics include: 1) how to make a solar oven, 2) how to design a solar water distiller, 3) how to design a passive solar house, and 4) how to make air conditioning earth tubes. These topics are built on each other in concept, going from easier to harder, with the exception of earthtubes, which are supplementary to passive solar house design and involves passive cooling rather than passive heating (the latter of which is done through the design of the house itself). These four subjects are also great for people who live off grid or plan to live where there is sunshine but want to reduce their power bills. There is no reason why utility bills have to be outrageous when the design of your building projects can utilize renewable energy to bring you purified water, hot cooked food, warmth during winter, and a way to keep cool in summer. I have personally built all of these projects and you can too. Everything I can think of is covered here on how to do it.
