What If My Roof Faces East-West?
If your roof is facing East-West, you can also do solar in most instances by being creative. Here's a simple, low-cost, and extremely strong racking system we developed two years ago. The roof shown is pitched East-West but the modules are mounted perpindicular to the pitch in a Southerly direction. The angle can be adjusted by using different lengths for the rear supporting bars. This allows us to work with existing obstructions. In this case, trees in the backyard and in neighbours yards can be worked around by adjusting the angle of the module to be a little flatter. This only reduces overall production by a few percentage points on an annual basis.
