Written by Chris Haynes an engineer and off grid tiny house dweller, this book will get you started on the road to building your own off grid power system. The search results in front of you contain a ton of books that claim to be the "complete guide to something or other." This book is much different! Many books are too simple to be of use, and others are too complex for a new builder. The result is a book collecting dust on your physical or electronic bookshelf. This book assumes that you know nothing about off grid power and despise reading textbooks disguised with fancy covers. You will find that the pages read like a series of social media posts (small amount of text with pics). The pages are easy to digest, you can stop anytime your brain hurts. Most books fill your head with theory and then expect you to head over to the parts store to wire up your house. This book fills you up with just enough theory to understand the complete system designs at the end of the book. These designs come with part lists, wiring diagrams, and capacity specs. Use one of these designs for your own project, or modify them however you want. The author maintains a web site for the book so you can yell at him for the bad spelling on page 63, ask a question, or get advice on your project. Discussion and feedback will be incorporated into future revisions of this book or supplemental volumes.

This double-volume work focuses on socio-demographics and the use of such data to support strategic resource management and planning initiatives. Papers go beyond explanations of methods, technique and traditional applications to explore new intersections in the dynamic relationship between the utilization and management of resources, and urban development. International authors explore numerous experiences, characteristics of development and decision-making influences from across Asia and Southeast Asia, as well as recounting examples from America and Africa. Papers propound techniques and methods used in geographical research such as support vector machines, socio-economic correlates and travel behaviour analysis. In this volume the contributions examine issues such as natural resource and environmental management, livelihoods issues in the context of climate change, land markets and land trusts, adaptive management of wildlife sanctuaries, ground water scarcity, flood hazards and flood plain management, non-conventional energy resources, community forestry and management and land use and land cover change. The significance of these topics lie in the pace and volume of change as is reflected through continued development within established fields of inquiry and the introduction of significantly new approaches during the last decade. Readers are invited to consider the dynamics of spatial expansion of urban areas and economic development, and to ex plore conceptual discussion of the innovations in and challenges on urbanization processes, urban spaces themselves and both resource management and environmental management. Together, the two volumes contribute to the interdisciplinary literature on regional resources and urban development by collating recent research with geography at its core. Scholars of urban geography, human geography, urbanism and sustainable development will be particularly interested in this book.
