Positioning Solar panel to intercept maximum Sun's ray

Place the panel perpendicular to geographic north pole.
Geographic noth pole can be determind by compass app or
use a web browser go to NOOA.
Drag the location icon to your property’s location and go to maximum zoom.
Set time to local high noon. Click on the check box “Show Azimuth”.
A line pointing to geographic north will appear.
Use any straight edge feature on your property, such as a wall.
find the angle between the straight edge feature and “Azimuth” Line.
Call this angle A. Then subtract angle A from 90°. Call this angle B.
Orient the Solar panel face at angle B relative to straight edge.


From NOAA page, find the latitude of your location on summer solstice.
Raise the solar panel by this angle. Your solar panel would intercept the
maximum amount of light from the sun. The maximum intersect angle will need
to increase by 23.4° by winter solstice.
