So heat kills solar production. That is why flexible are not as efficient as raised.

Heat increases the current and decreases the voltage of solar panels. The "Pmax" listed on a panel's specifications tells how much power a panel loses per degree over "Standard test condition" which is usually 77 deg. F. (25 deg. C)

Cooler panels perform better.
