  • Early May: set your solar panels at your angle of latitude minus 15 degrees.
  • Early August: set your solar panel at the same angle as your latitude.
  • Early November: set your solar panel at your angle of latitude plus 15 degrees.

For the vast majority of people, though, a solar tracker is only a neat "toy" you might buy for the fun of it and nothing else-the cost is not really warranted.
