Myth 5: “North-facing panels are best”
Traditionally, people installed north-facing panels on their homes and found its maximum output was around lunchtime. As solar panel prices began to fall, people started installing panels on the west and east as solar solutions became affordable.
However, if your main electricity use is early or late in the day, a mixture of different orientations may make sense to maximise production when the sun is in the east or the west. It’s best to work with a solar company that can tailor the best design for your needs.
Keep in mind that panels can be installed across various roof areas.
