US Department Of Energy "Best Practices" Solar Guidebook

"The U.S. Department of Energy's Building America program has released a new best practices handbook for builders, High-Performance Home Technologies: Solar Thermal & Photo-voltaic Systems. The guidebook explains current photo-voltaic and solar thermal building practices and provides useful tips for builders and home buyers. The book also enhances the information contained in the previous Best Practices volumes that give climate-specific tips for energy-efficient building in five climate zones."

The guide is very well laid out and attractively presented: unusal for a tech handbook. Donwload the entire thing here. Via::Renewable Energy Access.
