 +{{ http://​img.mousetrap.net/​misc/​wattsunderconditions.jpg}}Based on [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Orders_of_magnitude_%28illuminance%29|lux measurements]],​ we can estimate how sky clarity/​brightness affects the amount of power theoretically available to the panel.  ​
 +Takeaways: ​ overcast skies greatly reduce output, and there is no meaningful power available at sunrise/​sunset.
