I was up late last night drawing some Tiny Solar House updates that included a way of integrating photovoltaic solar panels into the design. This morning I’m thinking that my previous solution won’t work very well.Based on the early comments to the design I’m thinking I’m not alone either.
So here’s another idea. What if an awning that has a pivoting solar panel array built into it? This would give the panels more support and still allow the homeowner the ability to move the panels toward the sun when the window side of the house was facing toward or away from the sun. What do you think of this idea?
