Solar Array Site Evaluation
Using The Solar Pathfinder
Engineer775 of PracticalPreppers uses the Solar Pathfinder to do a site evaluation for a solar array installation.
He plans a V-pattern array with each “wing” 30° off true South (that is, SSE and SSW). The goals:
- Array can’t be seen from road,
- Doesn’t want to look at the back off the panels from his home (ugly),
- Optimal solar production, with peaks in the morning and afternoon, and
- Exactly which trees must come down (firewood bonus!).
