This manual is about making solar electricity available to rural Africans. It was developed from lesson notes produced for a 1985 training programme conducted in south Meru District, Kenya, by Harold Burris and myself. At the time, Harold Burris and a number of Kenyan electricians (their company was called Solar Shamba) were designing and installing solar electric systems tailored to the expectations of rural home owners.
