We are starting a new educational series for those who buy our products and/or are interested in buying them. This series is meant to inform users on the different aspects of our lights and how to use them. Please contact us for more information or questions you may have. Enjoy!
Chapter 1 Panel Angle
What’s the best direction to angle the solar panels of off-grid solar lights?
In Northern America, solar panels get the most optimal charge when installed facing the South.
The area will dictate the installation of the fixtures and will sometimes prevent the lights from facing south. But that’s okay! Panels facing West & East won’t get as much light as a Southern facing panels but will still collect a good amount of sunlight. A North–facing panel also works, but it will take longer to charge than any other direction. This would mean that the solar charge will be less optimal if installations are facing that way.
