Kilowatt (kW):

A measure of electrical power equivalent to 1.34 horsepower or 1,000 watts. As an example, a typical toaster requires 800-1,400 watts to operate.

Kilowatt-hours (kWh) since July 2019:

A measure of electrical energy equivalent to 1.34 horsepower or 1,000 watts over a period of one hour. As an example, a 100-watt lightbulb operating for 10 hours would use one kilowatt-hour.

Plane of Array Irradiance (POAI):

A measure of the intensity of sunlight at the angle of the solar array in watts per square meter.

Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI):

A measure of the intensity of sunlight shining on a level surface in watts per square meter.

Nearly 1,400 solar panels
make up the first section of our solar array. The panels are in a fixed position, tilted at the ideal angle, to maximize the amount of energy produced.

acre

35 acres
make up the site of our Solar Share facility. Each section of panels takes up roughly 3 acres.

bolt

420 kilowatts of AC power
can be produced by the first section of inverters when at maximum capacity. The panels can produce 500 kilowatts of DC power.
