"The value for students with any interest in solar energy lies in the contextual definitions of terminology that you cannot find in Wikipedia. [The encyclopedia] may also be useful for social scientists and humanists looking to participate in conversations about solar energy and technology. It helpfully delineates nebulous terms with multiple meanings, as well as relevant acronyms. This series has overall usefulness for multidisciplinary studies. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates, technical school students, and public libraries."
