its only a 10.2 KW system, so 80 % of the max is good isn't it in Feb?
My bad. I thought I read 15 and that was in my head. Yes, it is great performance for this part of the year.
I also thought the curve would be a different shape due to the split directions of the panels..

In summer if it clips which it might, not to worry, you will be producing a bunch.

Also my best day since install :). Actually the past week in Illinois has been great.

I'm 6.12 kW with 18 panels facing south

You are lucky to face south! We too had a full sun day here in Massachusetts, and my production total and curve is identical to yours. Unfortunately for me I have an east/west split 12.24kwp system of 36 panels. So really only have of my system is working at a given time. So I paid twice as much for the system for the same production because of my roof orientation. o_O

I kinda have the same issue. 1/3 of my panels face west, but for the first half of the day they are block by my house. Now they do face west so I guess better than nothing, but a lot of money for 1/2 the production

Had to put them on the front side of the house. Not what I wanted to do initially looks wise, but don't mind it now.
