You can only be good at what you're doing if you know exactly what you're doing. One of the most important things you need to keep in mind is that solar panels run on sunlight, so the amount of electricity a solar panel produces depends on the amount of sunlight that strikes it.

The quantity of solar energy that reaches our solar home differs during the day, month or year and it also depends on the meteorological conditions. See how the weather is like in your town and how long the days are, before starting to spend money in a solar panel system.

It is also important to know that solar panels provide two or even three times more power during the summer than during the other seasons of the year.

When you position your solar panel keep in mind to place it somewhere with no shade. Some of the best places where you can do that are building rooftops since they are tall, relatively big surfaces.

Another option is the sunniest part of the yard somewhere where there are no obstacles. Your solar panel must bathe in the sunlight for at least seven hours a day (the best time is between 9 am and 4 pm. When you create your solar panel do some calculations.

You have to know the amount of solar radiation energy expressed in hours of full sunlight per sq. m. This is called Peak Sun Hours, and it represents the average quantity of sun available per day throughout the year. It's estimated that during just one peak sun hour, 1000 W/m² of power touches the surface of the earth.
