Zoning

In future, a special solar zoning will be needed in urban areas with PV systems. The borders of building areas can be clearly marked on three-dimensional maps to prevent future problems. The amount of sunlight can also be determined on these maps.

23.4.1.2 Reflection

Although not a major problem, under certain circumstances, reflection can occur. In low-rise build­ings, there are no significant problems, but in mixed low – and high-rise areas residents in high-rise buildings may experience some annoying reflections if all the surrounding houses have (glass – covered) PV modules. The fact that there are certain distances between buildings (for shadowing) may eliminate most of the potential problems.
