When your roof is being assessed for solar, your solar specialist will review the possible obstructions to your solar power system performing at its highest capability. This way they can determine the best solar panel design to improve the energy yield and lengthen the homeowners payback period.
Unfortunately there is only so much that can be done when dealing with environmental factors that can decrease this and a common factor is shade from trees, chimneys etc.
When shade hits your solar panels, it doesn't just effect the one panel that has shade but the entire string of panels that are connected. You can avoid this by installing microinverters under each panel but this is a costly alternative.
That's why SMA's shade fix is gaining so much attention at the moment. It optimises your string of panels on your roof to perform at its best when one or multiple panels are being effected by shade. But how does it do this? Watch the video below!
