That is only true if you use a tracker OR the inverter limits the output. Otherwise, the curve looks almost exactly like a bell (no flat top).ERG4ALL wrote:I was told by the Enphase people that they intentionally have more panels with smaller inverters because the generation on a daily basis is a bell curve with a flat top.
Fortunately, the OP will almost never see a flat top with his new array. For that to happen, it has to be quite cold and clear and the sun needs to very close to the boresight of the array. That will likely occur only a handful of times each year. If the roof is very flat, then it likely will never happen.
