Delete all your orange rectangles except the bottom one.
With the Select Objects tool S Click once on the orange rectangle to see the object handles, then click a second time to show the rotation handles.
Click and drag the Rotation centre off to the right. Note: you can hold down Ctrl as you drag it to constrain the move horizontally.
Press Ctrl+D to duplicate the orange rectangle
While holding down Ctrl, click and drag the rotation handle to rotate at 15 degree increments.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 until complete.
In your example I also notice the grey box is a little wonky.
An easier way to make that would be to instead draw a rectangle with a thick stroke and no fill. Convert to paths using Path > Object to Path. With the Select by Nodes tool N, select the top segment and hit the Delete Segment button in the Controls along the top
