Amendments to Orientation of Collectors for Solar Heated Water Systems

MPAQ was advised of a change to AS/NZS3500.4: 2015 which was adopted on 1 May 2016. At this time it was discovered that the orientation of solar panels were now being required to face within 45 degrees of true north, rather than east or west as is often the practice. Not every house has that roof orientation. Not every household wants their solar hot water system facing north.
