Am I correct that the optimal orientation for a solar panel is:
Perpendicular to Solar South
at Solar Noon
on the Winter Solstice
How about tilt? I suspect it also matters, how is the optimum for that determined?

The necessary components of a system are:
Solar panel(s)
Controller - to keep from frying the battery
Converter - to make the DC usable as AC

Any help greatly appreciated but be warned. If you bite on this I might have lots more questions.
I knew that guy would be trouble! Thanks tiny ad!
