The user of energy does not care how the energy is supplied as long as it is available when needed and at the lowest possible cost. Therefore, one must consider the entire energy supply system, not just the solar components. The most important factors to be considered are listed below: 1. , heat, cooling, electricity) 2. , continuous, part of day, part of year) 7 For these reasons, G. K. O'Neill, author of The High Frontier, has said that the earth's surface is one of the worst places for collecting solar energy.

2 are obtained by rotating the unprimed coordinates of Fig. 1), this implies that the unit vector n's to the sun has the following coordinates in the xf, /, z' system: Now the incidence angle 8 of the sun on the collector follows directly from the dot product 36 Active Solar Collectors and Their Applications Sometimes the azimuth fa of the sun is of interest. To obtain an explicit expression for fa as a function of time we write n's directly in terms of the angular variables of Fig. 2 [analogous to Eq.
