Solar photovoltaic systems work very well in Wyoming because we have few overcast days and an annualized average sun day of 6 hours every day. Our temperatures are also cooler than others so our solar panels work more efficiently, producing more energy while the sun shines. This mostly overlooked fact is so important that solar panel manufacturers publish these temperature coefficients on their brochures.

We prefer to install solar panels on ground mounts instead of roof mounts, wherever possible because the solar panels run considerably cooler. Roof mounts are used when there is not enough space or there is a large tree or building shading on the ground.

Solar panels should face south at approximately 41-44 degree angle (angle is the same as your latitude).
