SHADE TOLERANT SYSTEMS
Maybe you love living in a Leafy suburb and have been wondering how well a solar system will work for you. Do you have a neighbouring building or other objects obstructing the suns path over your roof? With advances in modern solar technology, we now have a great range of solar products which will dramatically help improve daily energy yields on partially shaded roofs.
Panels with built-in optimisers are the most recent addition to solar systems arsenal in combating shade, where each panel works independently from any other panel its connected to in the same string. Some of these systems also offer panel level monitoring so you can see what any panel in a string is producing at any particular time during the day.
Pictured: Sun rising in the morning with the neighbouring building obstructing the suns rays reaching a roof, first affected are the panels that are installed closest to obstruction while panels furthermost away may have the sun for up to 1 hour prior. A standard solar array installed in this situation will be dramatically affected as one shaded panel will affect the performance of each panel connected in the same string.
