So, you found a DIY E-Book that was helpful?

The URL would be helpful...

It's there above the advert pic. I typed in the website address and it came up with the text that's underlined there.

Wow... building your own 100watt PV panels with hard ware store parts and building wind turbines the easy way.
Is this for real? I've grown up around people who live off grid, hung out with people like Richard Komp who has written some of the best books on PV's, I have the kind of parents who have a pickup truck full of vintage wind turbine parts that needs to be unloaded and added to their collection and have taken classes taught by the kind of people that have a handful of wind towers so they can test home built and factory built wind turbines and reading that web site gives me the same kind of feeling that I get reading an Email from someone telling me that I just need to give them my bank account number so they can transfer me money from an unclaimed off shore account.
I highly suspect that anyone who "buys" one of those books will shortly find their credit card info in the wrong hands.

you can pat by paypal or Trust-e so they cant be after your credit card details. And recently i've read a lot of things that say you can get the stuff you need to build your own solar panels etc from the hardware store.
