Just wondering about how practical it would be installing solar panels on a roof in the Midwest (Southern Ohio, for example) where the gable roof faces east and west? And what would be acceptable roof pitches (6:12, 8:12)?
Check out http://pvwatts.nrel.gov/ It's a site that will help you determine how much power you can generate over the course of a year due to changes in the sun's position. Part of the process allows you to place panels on a satellite image of your house.
