Weird output with Eko 2000 inverter

Postby Pete44 » Sun May 26, 2019 2:22 pm

When we moved into this house 5 years ago there was already a 2kW system with panels on the north side. Our neighbour on the north side has conifers that now completely shade the panels from about mid-May to mid-August. Keep in mind that the panels get no direct sunlight even on a sunny day.

When it is sunny, the panels, according to the inverter display, are generating zero electricity. When it's cloudy they produce between 350 and 420 Watts. Can anyone explain to me why this is, please?

I've thought of having them moved to the east side which gets plenty of sunshine into mid-afternoon but would it be worth the expense with panels that are probably 10 years old or more?
