As the world turns to sustainability, solar enriches our lives. SAVING SUNSHINE
takes a look at today's developments in solar electricity and its increasing role
as power provider.

Combining the best features of off-grid , stand-alone solar installations with grid-tied systems that provide distributed generation, photovoltaic systems have evolved into AC-coupled systems . They provide back-up, stand-alone electricity while also using renewable solar energy for our everyday electrical needs.

This combination of renewable energy and energy storage connects multiple inverters with maintenance-free batteries and opens the door to energy independence in a sustainable, low-carbon future.

Teachers, electricians, system installers, architects, owners of grid-tied systems and solar advocates will find the clear explanations in SAVING SUNSHINE helpful in learning
the specifics of an AC-coupled system and how it forms a local distribution system to deliver electricity in a more reliable and environmentally friendly manner.
