I have a 400# and had the same concern. It looks like it's kinda tucked back underneath. The panel gets plenty of light. It keeps the battery fully charged and I've had no issues. They make a great product.

I thought the same thing about mine ( not enough light ) Keep in mind it doesn't need exact sunlight it just needs light. Now that's not saying I would not face it in the direction of the sun . Mine gets half a panel of sun and the rest regular light.
