Does roof orientation really matter
Most certainly. For example, a system with solar panels facing in a southerly direction will generate far less than one with a northerly aspect. However, east/west installations can be a good option depending on the installation scenario.
What is a grid connect solar power system ?
Grid connect systems , often located in built up areas, supply solar electricity through an inverter directly to the household and to the electricity grid if the system is providing more energy than the house needs. When power is supplied to the mains grid, the home owner usually receives a credit or a payment for that electricity. This is called a feed in tariff.
Enphase Enlighten and Internet Re Connection
The Enphase Micro Inverter Solar System or the Enphase Battery System both use the Envoy S-Metered for communication.
When a homeowner changes their router or Internet provider, the Envoy-S Metered may cease to communicate with the system. To fix this issue, simply follow the steps outlined by Andrew Mitchell in this quick Enphase Handy Tips video.

What can affect the amount of solar energy received
The strength of the solar energy (irradiation) available depends on the time of year, the time of day, and the latitude of the generation point. The amount of energy generated can be further affected by the amount of dust and water vapour in the air, the amount of cloud cover and any shading of the solar panels and the quality of the solar modules.
