      If an array were on the equator, the incline angle would be 0 degrees north to south, tracking east to west. As you move north of the equator, the incline angle is the same as the latitude, 29 degrees north for Houston. The altitude of the sun, measured from the vertical, at noon, would vary +/- 23 degrees from the 29 degrees, throughout the year. Mid summer, the angle, at noon, of the sun, measured from a vertical, would be 29 - 23 = 7 degrees. In winter, the angle at noon, would be 29 + 23 = 52 from the vertical.
      Hope that helps.

      Does anyone know for a Single Axis Tracking system in Houston, the incline angle for North/South?
