The 1st task in calculating the angle of a solar collector is to first determine the best exposure. This means finding an unobstructed view to the south. A perfect view is not mandatory and the solar system will still work fine, but the better the south view the greater the performance. The ideal location is due south. However, the azimuth with solar vacuum tubes (degrees off of south), can be as great as 45 degrees East or West and still provide reasonable performance.
