The proper siting of any renewable energy system is critical to its success. However, siting a solar energy system can be particularly challenging because of the varying nature of the sun. Daily weather fluctuations and seasonal position changes can have significant effects on a system's performance. These and other factors must be considered by architects, engineers, energy analysts, and others. The information provided by RReDC can be used to ensure optimum system siting.
