Anyone outthere with some reallife experience in active cooling of PV panels
to enhance energyproduction?

How about a soaker hose on a 24vac irrigation solenoid? Measure watts,
squirt for 5 seconds, measure watts etc.

And while it's not exactly the same thing, there was a solar boat race in
your neck of the woods that some entrants used water cooled photovoltaics

Aha! make electricity and heat water with the same panel. Double the
