Solar Panels must be in a non-shaded place on your home, business, or property. The optimal placement is on a southern exposure free of shading. Panels may be installed on the roof, on a ground mount, or on tracking devices depending on the site. Systems are designed for maximum sun hours throughout the year. You will have a longer solar window during the summer months, and a smaller window with the shorter days of winter.
If your property has slight or periodic shading issues there are a number of ways to deal with this problem.
