What direction to face solar panels?


In the northern hemisphere, you can get the best production by pointing the panels to solar south. Solar south may be slightly off from magnetic south and can be estimated by using solar production charts. For example, in Taos, New Mexico, solar south is about 11 degrees east of magnetic south.
