ABSTRACT
The article reports on output optimization of customer-sited solar photovoltaic (PV) installations through adjustment of orientation and tilt, and tracking of sun movement as of 2015. Topics discussed include the 11-30 degrees tilt in about two-thirds of installed fixed-tilt systems in California in 2014, and the higher installation cost in pitched roofs different in orientation. Also mentioned is the use of tracking systems that rotate array of panels to follow the sun for increased output.
