I was looking at a solar panel installation today on a roof with an almost east and west direct facing aspects. The owner installed the solar panels on the west aspect of the house, which is the rear, so as not to have any panels facing out onto the street. I will bet the neighbours would complain if he did. However, I was thinking if one did have a choice, east or west? I am inclined to go with west, because you are more likely to have a store of hot water ready for you when you arrive home in the evening. Even in winter time if the day was sunny. I have a feeling that solar panels on the east, might receive a lot of good sunlight in the summer, that may well be useable if one is to have a morning shower. But for the rest of the wintertime, it may not be much good. Except at weekends perhaps.
