Why should solar panels face south?



  1. 0 Votes

    Solar panels should face true south if you are in the northern hemisphere, but should face north if you are in the southern hemisphere. The angle of the panel’s tilt should depend on your specific latitude coordinate, and this is so that the panel can get the most sunlight. Note that true south and magnetic south are different.

    The sun rises from the east and sets on the west. It is true that the tilt of your solar panel determines the duration and intensity of sunlight your panel receives. It is better you face your panel either to the east or to the west. The reason is that if it faces the east, it receives the early morning sunlight while it continues to receive sunlight almost at sunset if it faces the west.
