We are deploying automated systems in the topics and hope to use solar panels, but this closed canopy in most places I'm seeing this as a challenge.
Past the obvious: 'find a clearing' or 'put them really high', does anyone have good advice on what output we could expect from panels under the canopy?

You may want to do site surveys and measure solar panel output over a few days for various potential locations. Depending on the solar panel, you do not need full light to get full capacity. My main recommendation would be to increase the battery capacities or add spare batteries and just use the solar panels to supplement the battery life.
