MAXIMIZING SOLAR PANEL POWER PRODUCTION
From morning until evening, solar panels produce useful energy for the home. In the Australian continent, the sun moves from the east to the west in a northern direction. From 9am the solar energy production of the panels starts to increase and reaches peak around midday.
Factors in increasing solar energy production
Australia is one of the sunniest places on earth. The ideal position for the solar panels is the area in the roof that faces north. This will help maximize your solar gain. The problem with some residential solar installations is the lack of proper roof space. In some instances, solar panels are installed in various areas of the property and a dual MPPT or two inverters may be needed.
Such installations start converting sunlight into electricity from 9 am until late afternoon. The two arrays still need to be treated individually since it has the tendency to experience different directional losses depending on the pitch of the roof, the direction and voltage of the solar panels.
Your location in the Australian continent is also another factor. It affects the amount of sunlight you receive. If your property is located in the further north area, it is most likely that your solar panels will produce more power.
