In an unplanted or newly planted tank, direct sunlight can cause green water and algae, and should be shielded. In a balanced planted tank, direct sunlight has only positive effect. My high tech tanks receive window sunlight in mid morning and I see more lush growth in plants hit by the sunlight. Before I had plants, I struggled with bba and gda in the areas hit by direct sunlight, and had to lower the window curtain. Once with plants and balanced out, the algae never return and I open up the curtain to welcome more sunlight in. I guess strong plant competition and a troop of algae eaters I introduced help eliminate algae.
I would say go for it with your plan and plant heavily right from start to out compete algae. You will have some brown and other algae at the beginning but with patience and balanced plant growth, algae will be free in time,
