Green Collar Careers - Sun Path
The purpose of the Sun Path Chart is to provide a graphical view of
the sun's path through the day on both summer and winter solstices.
This will allow you to identify any obstacles that may restrict
solar exposure to the collector through the year. Click on the
image to see a larger view.
Open the following
Sun Path Chart tool provided by the University of Oregon to plot
out an image of the chart to visually represent the Solar Altitude
and Solar Elevation for the site. This will help to orient the
sketch. The instructions are fairly straight forward and the
PDF output is usually the best option.
