The Solar Electricity Handbook is a yearbook[1] written by eco-technology author Michael Boxwell.[2] It is a beginners technical manual for people looking to learn about solar energy and how to generate electricity from photovoltaic panels.[1]

The book starts with explaining how solar energy works and then guides the reader through evaluating a solar project, how to design a photovoltaic system and how to install and maintain it. The book uses the principal example of a small off-grid home, but incorporates a number of other examples throughout the book.[1]

The book is not aimed at people who are already working in the photovoltaic industry.[3]

Updated every year, the book's seventh revision was published in 2013.[4]
