10 degrees closer to the equator or 300 hours/year extra Sunshine, what would you choose?


Of course this question isn't appropriate for people living <10 degrees north or south

Definitely 10 degrees closer to the equator for me even if sunshine levels were the same

10 degrees closer for sure.. (I'm assuming this would mean our sunshine would increase due to this anyway but for the purposes of this thread let's say not)

Our January would likely go from 8C/2C to 14C/8C and our July from 24C/14C to 30C/20C

In the UHI of the city it would be even warmer... Yes please!

300 hours more sun - would be more noticeable here where we only get 1300-1400 hours a year anyway.

10 degrees south without a doubt. Sunshine is amazing here with over 2600 hours I believe it is ? Here in Raleigh.

I don't need more sun. I need brighter sunlight during winter.

10 degrees south it is.

300 hours of sunshine. Our climate is already warm enough for me, but I would not mind some extra sunshine (providing it would be during the colder half of the year - extra cold in winter would be nice as well instead of those dull 5c overcast days)
