Shadowy Existence

Yield of photovoltaic plants depends to a high extent on shadowless operation: Beside trees and buildings even unimpressive objects like
  • antennas
  • lightning rods
  • aerial cables
  • chimneys
may significantly reduce yield. Background is the construction of modules from numerous single solar cells.

Under operation conditions where shadowing can't be avoided completely, the orientation of photovoltaic modules, yet more important catenation of modules to strings and their connection to one or more inverters, are similar decisive to yield like roof's orientation and slope.
