evaluating a site's solar resource for solar electricity
Before you buy a PV system, you'll want to be sure your site has enough solar energy to meet your electricity needs efficiently and economically. Your local system supplier can perform a solar site analysis for you or show you how to do so on your own.
When evaluating your site, you'll also need to consider both the geographic orientation and the tilt of your solar panels as both can affect your system's performance.
