Today’s graph looks like winter mittens. Yes, mystery solved. During the 1:15 – 2:15 p.m time, my large pine tree in back that had never shaded the panels before is now shading during that hour. Also, after 4 p.m. the older Aleppo Pine shades the solar panels due to the sun so low on the horizon. Even with this I am not concerned. Sungevity said this is normal for this time of year, early morning and late afternoon shadows. Sometimes they occur from neighbors roof lines, trees, and other objects. As long as I am producing the minimum required in the contract and also producing most of my electricity during the 9-3 or 10-4 time. The tree in the middle of the yard that shades from 1-2 is unfortunate, but it is only for another 2 months then things go back to normal. Here is today’s “mitten” graph.
