Morning Sun Solar

In Miami the prevailing wind is ESE to SSE. So my boat is usually facing the morning sun. My trawler's flybridge has a 45 degree angled brow on that I could affix 300w of solar panels to.

My thinking is it would start charging my batteries sooner (than the horizontal panels I already have on my hardtop) if I added those 3 panels on the brow. But I'm just wondering if the sun is putting out enough energy in those earlier morning hours to make it worth it?
