      this picture is taken looking almost due north.
      there are to many trees around it.

        be a good place for PV panels.  Even if there's a lot more very tall trees off the left side of the photo, the east end looks like it would get good sunshine from mid-morning until sunset.  You might be pleasantly surprised at how much power you'd get.   Or you might be able to mount a row of panels like awnings on the southeast facing walls.  (Don't do both to start, too complicated.  Do roof or wall, and the other a few years later.)

        Pick a sunny afternoon and try taking a picture from far enough out to see the southwest roof every half hour from about 4 PM until sunset.  I think you'll see there's a lot of potential power on that roof.
