Launched in June 2018 and shooting straight to Amazon.com.au’s #2 best selling book, The Good Solar Guide fills a gaping void that consumers have been desperately in need of for over a decade, and Solar Analytics’ own Nigel Morris celebrated with Finn at his book launch last week.
Nigel said, “The book is an absolute must read irrespective of whether you are thinking about solar or already have solar. If you read this book, you’ll learn an enormous about about the practicalities and economics of buying solar.”
The Good Solar Guide is loaded with detailed, practical advice on how to choose a good solar system that will generate lots of reliable energy and give you low bills for decades. You can expect to pick up secrets and tips such as:
The Good Solar Guide also offers some very specific suggestions about monitoring your solar and flags the importance of getting this part right:
“Many inverters will let you monitor their solar production remotely these days, and some include consumption monitoring. I’ll let you in on a little secret: most of them suck compared to a good third-party monitoring system. Why? Because they’re made by inverter manufacturers, and the software is a side gig. Using the inverter manufacturer’s monitoring to advise you if you should make a claim on their warranty is putting the fox in charge of the hen house.”
A solar monitor from a third party solar monitoring company, which does nothing but think about how to make their monitoring software better every day, is the best way to keep tabs on your super-duper solar (and perhaps battery) system. A third-party system is the only way to get all the features I described above.”
And many more poignant quotes about the importance of solar monitoring:
To our delight Finn also says, “The only third-party system I recommend at time of writing is an Australian system called Solar Analytics.”
Aw shucks, thanks Finn!
