Preface :
The worldwide market for grid-connected solar electric systems has increased from 1.55 gigawatts (GW) installed in 2006 to 11.86GW in 2010. This 2010 figure represents an increase of 665 per cent over the 2006 figure. It is to be expected that the general public as well as tradesmen, technicians and other professionals will need information about all aspects of grid-connected solar as they see these systems installed in their suburbs and on larger roof spaces; they will also wish to know how it affects their lives. In the absence of basic technology and installation information, how and why grid connected solar electric systems work and the value they can represent for the electricity grid may be misrepresented. As can be seen by the increase in the grid-connected solar electric market, the technology and production of solar modules and enabling products (e.g. inverters, mounting structures etc.) are now mature; product demand has been increasing from year to year with healthy forward projections, so many more manufacturers have moved into this technology market, driving prices down; governments around the world have introduced various economic drivers for renewable energy, with those affecting solar electric systems being typically subsidies, feed-in tariffs and redeemable renewable energy credits.
