Solar Generation in Marrickville
A solar panel system in Marrickville, New South Wales which is installed with good access to the sun, can get around 4.25 kWh of solar energy per kW installed on average per day throughout the year.
The optimal panel angle in Marrickville for year round solar production is 34° from the horizontal, and facing due North (0° azimuth). This allows for the most total production throughout the year. However, depending on when you use the most electricity, you may want to consider optimising your installation for different times in the year.
Bear in mind that roofs typically have a pitch of between 15 - 30°, and it usually makes sense if you are installing on a house, to simply lie the panels flat on the roof without changing the angle. This is due to cost, fixing and aesthetics. Installs look nicer when they are flat against the roof, they are more secure, and there is extra costs involved in changing the angle, both in parts and labour.
* This data is purely theoretical, based on solar irradiance and a 12% derating, every installation is different and should expect different outputs.
