The Table below shows the monthly and annual estimates for the amount of electricity (kWh) the MEOW V2 is capable of producing. The calculations use [ http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/old_data/nsrdb/1961-1990/redbook/sum2/24283.t NREL data ] for the solar resource in Arcata, CA at a horizontal tilt (2nd column) and the monthly shading profile in the CCAT driveway according to a solar path finder reading (3rd column). The calculations are for the 920 W, flat-mount (i.e. 0°) array and consider a total system efficiency of 85% (93% for the inverter, 95% for the batteries, and 96% for wire losses and module soiling).
