Generating your own power can be extremely satisfying. If you are considering using wind power, water power or solar power to generate electricity, then you will need to design and live with a system that manages it. Off the Grid is designed to inspire more and more people to do just that and even generate enough power to sell back to the electricity companies. It is equally indispensible for designers of systems for caravans, boats and remote unmanned equipment. It covers: System design; Resource evaluation; Batteries; AC or DC?; Electrical installation; Control systems (including inverters); Monitoring case studies; Safety; A glossary of difficult terms; Lists of equipment suppliers, designers and installers, consultants, support organisations and sources of further information.
