My name is Bill Seavey and I’ve been experimenting with what I call “basic” solar power for nearly 25 years. I started with a small 40 watt solar panel on my 20′ motor home and worked my way up from there–eventually outfitting a “strawbale” house in Baja, Mexico and a spare bedroom in Santa Maria, California with a “back-up” system for short or long term electrical outages and supplemental power (I was actually a little concerned about “Y2K”).
Eventually I wrote a tech manual on these small systems (see testimonials elsewhere on this site) which has sold thousands on the internet to every state in the union, every province in Canada and overseas. It’s called the People’s Guide to Basic Solar Power. The response has been terrific. The manual is a little out of date now (solar technologies are changing almost as fast as computers!) plus I want to do more, much more.. . http://williamseavey.com
