After looking into it my idea is to enclose my pv array in a fenced in area with it’s inside walls painted white to “brighten” up the area.

A Mirrors reflection will cause a hotspot on the panel that over time could likely damage it.
Using a softer reflective material like the white Tyvek ( very reflective ) or say flat white painted plywood would be safer (cooler) and likely still boost the lumens.

I’ll test this theory using a diy Tyvek reflector this summer then test again in winter to compare in different temperatures. A 20% gain in the winter would be a big win
