About the Author

Originally trained as an RAF ground radar engineer, Collyn Rivers spent a brief time with de Havilland designing power systems for guided missiles, before becoming a test engineer at the Vauxhall/Bedford Motors Research Test Centre. He migrated to Australia in 1963, where he designed and built scientific measuring equipment. In 1971, Collyn Rivers founded what, by 1976, became the world's largest-circulation electronics publication, Electronics Today International. From 1982 to 1990 he was technology editor of The Bulletin and also Australian Business magazines and in 1999 started two companies: Caravan and Motorhome Books, and Successful Solar Books (now RVBooks and SolarBooks). Anyone who has been an electronics enthusiast over the past 30 years or so will be well aware of Collyn Rivers. He was the founding editor of Electronics Today International (ETI) magazine which went on to have a number of very successful editions in the UK and elsewhere, as well as being very successful in Australia.

Reviews

Collyn Rivers has enormous knowledge of the subjects in his books and his writing is concise and not overdone with technicalities or difficult-to-understand jargon ... they are written in clear English and it is difficult to find any aspect not fully explained.

Peter PoatThe West Australian

Whether you want to simply understand the pros and cons of going solar . . . this book will answer more questions than any other. Highly recommended.

Alan GrayEditor, Earth Garden magazine

A pragmatic no-nonsense approach to solar energy written by acclaimed Australian author Collyn Rivers, who walks the walk by showing his self-installed solar system on his 100% solar powered 10-acre property in the Kimberley.
