The panel is permanently installed on a slight angle pointing south. I can't move it. This Winter it would have had a couple of feet of snow on top of it for several months.

Batteries for the trailer, 2 boats, garden tractor, etc are all stored in the basement, where I have control over keeping them charged all Winter long.

Too bad they did not make them tiltable.. My installer always includes a tilt kit.. as part of the install..

With the Winter we just had they would have to be nearly vertical to avoid a snow / ice covering
