Panels are merely a single component in a system whose ultimate purpose is to get power to where its needed, when it's needed, and do so economically. One must prioritize the whole system, and its overall efficiency in meeting its goals, over any single component. For example, panels producing electricity when that electricity is not being used is wasted - unless one has a sufficient storage system (and even then they can have losses.) We don't know what the OP's storage system is, and how much power it can store or for how long. So, the system needs to be prioritized above the actual max output of the panels.
