Do you really have a lot of sun on your roof?


I get a lot of people that call me everyday and say, “when I go outside and look at my roof, I have a lot of sun on it”. Many people think just because they have a sunny roof they have an ideal roof for solar panels, but often the inexperienced solar consumer is making a faulty assumption. Here in the USA, which falls under the northern hemisphere of the world, peak sun occurs around 12pm, at this time the sun is south.

The solar electric systems that get the maximum return on investment point true south. Looking at your home at noon notice the position of the sun, this will give you an approximate location of true south. Does your roof allow you to point solar panels true south?

Understanding the concept of magnetic declination and true south will help you get the most out of your investment in a solar electric system.
