Doh! Most solar panels are facing the wrong way, new study shows

Doh! Most solar panels are facing the wrong way, new study shows "Getting the most out of solar panels might seem easy, but it isn't. Common sense tells us that pointing them south (in the Northern hemisphere) will lead to the best performance, but according to a new study, they actually do better when pointed west because peak demand on the power grid is in the afternoon and evening, and so getting more solar power during that period is actually more useful at reducing the need for polluting sources of energy.

In short: To get maximum benefits, it's not just about how much electricity is produced, but also when it is produced..."

Nice Info! One of the reason against manufacturing solar modules is the fact that it does take power in order to manufacture them. You require to consider the fact, however, that the power used to manufacture solar module is going to eventually be outweighed by the power that is saved when using them.
