How to adjust solar panel angle throughout the year

angleIf you have solar panels that you need to manually adjust as the sun changes its angle throughout the year, there is an easy way.

Rather than doing complex calculations, just take a piece of wood and draw a line right down the middle.  Put a nail in the wood right on the line.

Hold the wood up to your panel and adjust the angle until the shadow falls on the pencil line.

I like to slightly overcompensate so I don’t have to adjust it as often.
