Charts & Graphs, by Technology Type
Because the installed capacity of each technology is different, we employ a “normalization” factor that adjusts each technology type to a common capacity that allows a valid comparison of efficiencies and output by type. Read more about our normalization formula.
If the generation output stays at the exact same level for a significant part of the day, this may indicate a "quality of data" issue.
- Kilowatt (kW)
A unit of measure used to express the output power of a solar array.
- Kilowatthour (kWh)
A unit of energy equivalent to one kilowatt of power expended for one hour of time. A measure of energy consumption.
