there is no difference
Earth's per­i­he­lion occurs around January 3, and the aphelion around July 4. The distance change is about 3.5%, which gives 6.9% increase in solar energy reaching the Earth at per­i­he­lion relative to aphe­lion. Since the southern hemi­sphere is tilted toward the per­i­he­lion, the southern hemi­sphere receives more energy from the Sun than does the northern over the course of a year.
