Search Results. Solar Panel Angle Calculator. This solar angle calculator tells you the optimum angle to get the best out of your system.

Solar Panel Angle Calculator

To get the best out of your photovoltaic panels, you need to angle them towards the sun. The optimum angle varies throughout the year, depending on the seasons and your location and this calculator shows the difference in sun height on a month-by-month basis. Of course, the sun is continually moving throughout the day and to get the very best from your photovoltaic system you would need to angle your panels to track the sun minute by minute. You can buy an automated solar tracker to do this (see picture on right).

Unfortunately, the expense of a tracker means that for most applications they are more expensive than buying additional panels to compensate. Moisture Control for Masonry. Value engineering in building design and construction - Designing Buildings Wiki. Hospital info 2014.
