For solar modules to generate the most electrical energy, sunlight must be received continuously. Even a small amount of shadowing causes a significant reduction in generation, wasting installed system capacity. Additionally, persistent shadow on modules drastically shortens their lifespan and makes them unusable far earlier than their typical lifespan of over 25 years.
