Hi Peter2

Actually is not much complicated, just follows my indications below:

1-Align your panel toward the sun at noon
2-Locate your city latitude using Google earth or or by globe charts, actually if you input your address into Google earth, it will tell you latitude and longitude, but you need only the latitude.
3- Fine align the solar panel angle facing the sun by setting the angle to be the same as location latitude from the floor flat surface, if you are in summer reduce you latitude solar panel angle by 15degrees, for winter time increase the solar panel by 15 degrees.

Hope this can help you.
