You can place panels on flat vertical roof or even south facing walls but you will lose some efficiency. For best results angle them to about 45 degrees in winter and lower in summer when sun is higher in sky.

One solution is to build a small shed with a south facing roof and this could house your batteries and a backup generator.

You can see a good example on this website:
