Every job requires a site inspection to determine suitability for a solar installation as regulated by the Clean Energy Council

Careful design is required to minimise panel shading as this has the largest effect on solar energy production

It is sometimes better to mount panels on an east and/or west facing roof to maximise output in shaded areas or to suit customer power usage

It is commonly quoted that a north facing site is best, this can be the case sometimes, but there are many other determining factors

For example if there is shade affecting the north roof or the customer uses power in the morning or afternoon then north may not be ideal

A well designed solar installation is well worth the time invested

A site inspection report is created by taking photos of the Solar Pathfinder (pictured below) in the spot where panels 
are to be positioned and then the images are processed with software to create the site report
