Photovoltaic Designer

Photovoltaic? Simply put, solar panels. I design solar systems to get the maximum energy from the sun. How do we layout our panels? How many panels do we need? What type of panels? Monocrystalline, polycrystalline or thin film? What direction should they face, and when? That's all down to me.
