Hi Guys

How important are the brackets in a solar panel system, why some people just lay panels down on the roof and dont use brackets, why other use brackets, are these adjustable, so we can change the angle to maximize sun exposure.
I am planing to add 10 solar panels and not sure if should ue an array, built it myself or buy brackets?

How do i calculate the elevation angle, any tool for this??

please comment

You need to have maximum sun exposure & wind protection.
Robotic controled frames allow for this but at a price.
Best to protect your investment with wind proof frames that have (angled) maximum sun exposure.

The supplier of the solar panels should also be able to supply Robotic controled frames / wind proof frames that have (angled) maximum sun exposure.
