Clever Idea from India's Solar Canals

I came across this meme today (sorry, don't know who originally created it. If you do, contact me so I can credit them.) on Facebook. It is rather clever, I think, and it got me considering ways I could implement this on my homestead. While I don't have a large amount of open water, such as in a canal or pond, I could help "shade" any area that I want to remain cooler by setting up my solar panels to do double duty: they can catch the suns rays for energy and to create shade. Setting up my panels on something somewhat easy to move around might be a good idea. This would give the added bonus of me being able to follow the sunlight in the winter/summer/winter transitions with less trouble as well.

What do you think?
