But it has to go somewhere how do you waste it?
Presumably one could heat water with the excess?
Sorry wrong thread will move the discussion to the correct thread.
The MPPT chargers are very clever and can control how much energy they pull from the panels.
You could reduce the waste by increasing your load, yes - but I don't have any electric geysers so no real way to do that. Moving your usage around so it coincides with peak generation is the most efficient - eg, I run my poolpump from 11am till 1pm.

It's pissing in Bryanston. Put my mobile phone on time lapse mode, need some rain footage.

Have heard that the new Leonardo hotel going up in Sandton may have been hit by lightning.
Something close around here was hit, anyway.
