Australia is located in the Southern Hemisphere, which means the sun appears in the northern part of the sky. By orienting solar panels to the north, they can capture the maximum sunlight throughout the day.

Most solar panels are designed to capture sunlight most effectively when they are facing the equator. For Australia, that means pointing them toward the north. The ideal tilt angle for solar panels in Australia is usually around 25 to 30 degrees. This angle allows the panels to receive maximum sunlight exposure throughout the year.
