What Direction Should Solar Panels Face?

Install your panels on a wall. If your roof doesn't face due south, you could install solar modules on a south-facing wall instead. This will only work if the wall receives lots of direct sunlight, i.e. it is relatively shade-free. Trees, bushes, or other buildings that cast shadows on the wall will make the solar panels less efficient.
