Is it worth putting a one foot high window to capture southern solar heat?

Due to site constraints I am limited in terms of south facing windows. I can put two on the roof of a vaulted ceiling that would face south. These can be about a foot high but 15' long (I know).

Is it worth putting them in for passive heat gain from the sun or are they not high enough?

I calculated the angles and have a picture if that helps.
