If you're looking into solar: you can beat overzealous solar salespeople at their own game. Arm yourself with the knowledge this book contains before purchasing solar panels.

If you already have solar: this book will help you understand it better and maximise your solar utilisation (and lower your energy bills). It may also assist in your decision to upgrade, replace, or expand your existing system.

Really comprehensive book detailing common sense ways to maximise your investment in solar. Goes through in an easy to understand way the decisions you need to make and it has the information you need to help with the decision. Most importantly it does not try to sell you anything - just gives unbiased information for you to decide. - Stephen (Verified Buyer, Australia).

Absolute best advice

Finn’s book was so easy to read, comprehensive and covered all the areas I needed information on and many other questions I now understand I needed information on. Highly recommended.

The Good Solar Guide

This text should be read by anyone contemlpating installing Solar Panels, together with all the necessary and optional "Add Ons".
Clear text with appropriate examples place the reader in control of any purchase contract, rather than at a major disadvantage in negotiating what is best for them.

Informative Read

I am getting my solar, installed by previous owner, replaced under insurance. I had a quote but was uncertain how good the information I received from contractor was. The book gave me a lot of knowledge and confidence in understanding my solar and also that my contractor is of a high quality.
