What about mounting the mirrors above the solar panels, facing down?
In such a way/angle that:
- when the sun is low in the winter, it hits the underside and reflects to the panels,
- when the sun is higher in the summer, the mirror partially shades the panels, helping reduce the risk of overheating.
They could also be mounted vertically on the sides, focusing the sun from due south in the winter, but shading due east and due west on summer mornings/evenings.
