What direction should I put my solar panels?

Clean Energy Regulator data shows that more than 2.68 million rooftop solar power systems have been installed in Australia in total, as of 31 December 2020; that means one in four homes have solar panels on their roof. If you have been looking around for solar you must know the production of your solar system depends on location of your property, direction of the panels and the quality of the products.

It is generally believed that north is always the best direction for installing solar panels due to the fact Australia lies in the southern hemisphere. The angle and direction of the panels is really important as that directly affects the production of the system. So what if you do not have a north direction available to install panels on the roof? It is a myth that north is the only best direction to install panels. Industry experts believe it for the optimum output panels shouldn’t only be placed in the north direction. Two sides of the roof should be used to install solar panels on the roof to receive the maximum production possible. East, west and north are generally termed as ideal directions for solar panel installations in Australia. However, speaking to a solar expert can help your roof analysis be done and install the panels in the correct direction with maximum output.

What if I have a south facing roof?

It is possible to install solar panels in the south direction as well, however, there are different techniques to do so. The matter of fact does exist that installing solar panels in the south direction will generate less production than north, east and west. However, the experienced solar installers can install solar panels in the south direction on height and at an angle that it receives maximum sunlight possible making the production loss minimum. Speak to our team if you have a south direction roof and we shall get in touch with you for your roof analysis and design.
