WHAT DIRECTION SHOULD SOLAR PANELS FACE FOR OPTIMUM RESULTS?
For solar panel systems to work efficiently in its fullest potential, your panels need to be placed in a position that lets it receive a generous amount of sunlight. In Australia, the sun’s direction runs towards the north.
Positioning your systems appropriately will help your systems get more sunlight for better energy generation. Should installing your systems facing the north side be impossible because of obstructions or positioning concerns, having your system installed facing the western or eastern side may work; however, be aware that this could lower your solar gains and increase your directional loses compared to solar power systems installed facing north.
