What is shading on a solar PV system?

Can anyone explain what shading is? Is it the placement of the panels relative to the sun?

Comments

This is promotional video for a module manufacturer, but it does a good job showing the impact of shading on solar panels.  If you can look past the promo, I think you it will help explain the issue.

 

Here is another classic video that also shows the impact of shading on solar panels.  You gotta love this low tech video.
