Whats my angle?

I’m going to help save the planet by adding solar panels to my roof!Noon@MyHouseShould I tilt the panels on my roof to more accurately aim towards the Sun?

If so, at what angle should I use?

Should I be able to adjust the panels to better receive low winter Sun and high summer Sun?

How do I figure all of this out?
