What’s my angle?

I'm going to help save the planet by adding solar panels to my roof!

Noon@MyHouse

  • Should I tilt the panels on my roof to more accurately aim towards the Sun?
  • If so, at what angle should I use?
  • Should I be able to adjust the panels to better receive low winter Sun and high summer Sun?
  • How do I figure all of this out?
