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