Written by Petter Varadi one of the early pioneers of terrestrial photovoltaics he takes us on a very informative and fun journey of the history of solar power, from the very beginning of the solar industry in 1973 (founding of Solarex) to German Feed-in tariff (FIT) in 2000 to the explosive growth of today (2013-14). Sun Above The Horizon is not a dry read, it is full of solar industry stories and anecdotes sprinkled in with abundance. After reading this book one sees how solar power is not a new phenomenon, that it has been growing at a similar pace for over 40 years and that it is not showing any signs of stopping.
