Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity. More sunlight means more energy so you want your panels to be where they will absorb as much light as possible. This placement depends on the size and shape of your house and the position and setting of your property.
Where They Go
If you are looking to add panels to your home, they will most likely be placed on your roof. Most panels are mounted on roofs at an angle for maximum absorption potential. Sometimes they are installed on the ground. This is primarily for commercial projects because ground installation requires a lot of space.
The best place for panels is different on every home. Every house and property is unique. An installer will evaluate your home and its surroundings to determine where your panels should go. They will look at the size and shape of your house and examine your property for trees or obstacles that cause shadows.
