Based on historical 20687 data, solar panels that are tilted towards the equator at an angle equal to the latitude will produce the maximum solar energy output in 20687. [1]

The region associated with 20687 has an average monthly Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI) of 4.28 kilowatt hours per square meter per day (kWh/m2/day), which is approximately 2% less than the average monthly Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI) of 4.36 kWh/m2/day. [1]

Solar installations in 20687 that are always titled at the latitude of Scotland (Average Tilt at Latitude or ATaL) average 4.98 kWh/m2/day, or about 16% greater than the average monthly GHI of 4.28 kWh/m2/day and approximately 14% greater than the average monthly DNI of 4.36 kWh/m2/day. [1]

Solar Energy Glossary

Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI)

Global Horizontal Irradiance: The total amount of solar radiation that is received per unit area by a surface that is always positioned in a horizontal manner.

Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI)

Direct Normal Irradiance: The total amount of solar radiation received per unit area by a surface that is always perpendicular to the sun rays that come in a straight line from the direction of the sun at its current position in the sky.

Average Tilt at Latitude (ATaL)

Average Tilt at Latitude: The total amount of solar radiation received per unit area by a surface that is tilted toward the equator at an angle equal to the current latitude. ATaL will often produce the optimum energy output.
