What is the optimal angle or orientation for solar PV in Western Canada?

The more perpendicular to the Sun’s rays a solar panel is, the greater the output. Therefore, facing your solar panels directly South is considered the ideal orientation, which will yield the best results. But not everyone has a perfectly pitched South facing roof, so what happens then? In this video, SkyFire Solar Specialist, Bryce Hayes, explains the optimal angles and orientations for solar in Western Canada and how a PV system can be designed to maximize production.
