5MW Solar Farm Energy Harvesting & PayBack Calculator

NB: Only the RED cells can be changed, currently set for a 5MW solar farm.

Change the Solar Panel size, and Array type to suit your Latitude Location !

 :: SOLAR FARM - Energy HARVESTING potential ::

Solar Panel Quantity:

 Modules/Panels. 

   
 Select Solar Panel Power:
 Type of Solar Racking:

 For accurate calculation, if solar array is effected by Shading from trees, buildings or terrain, reduce the hours of Harvesting!

 Total Energy Harvested:

 Change/Correct any of the above RED Fields to see the Investment Payback Time!

Important: Please note that all amounts and estimates shown above can be set to suit multiple configurations, and are used for symbolic estimation purpose only.  The actual figure depends on lots of issues including quantity of sun (cloud coverage), single or dual axis tracking, cabling (DC/AC), electrical connections and electronic losses etc.  These amounts and figures should be considered as example only, and under whatever circumstances, we do not make any guarantee, or cannot be held responsible about these estimates, if used as an actual return to investment!

These Module/Panel Racking options are commonly used in Solar Farm's !

Examples;

1x Residential DAT holds 16x 350W panel Array =5.6kW DC peak power.

1x Commercial DAT holds 24x 350W panel Array =8.4kW DC peak power.

1x Commercial DAT holds 30x 350W panel Array =10.5kW DC peak power.

1x Commercial DAT holds 40x 270W panel Array =10.8kW DC peak power.

1x Commercial DAT holds 48x 350W panel Array =16.8kW DC peak power.

1x Commercial SAT holds 60x 6 Rows, 350W panel Array (image) =126kWh DC peak power.

Use the above to evaluate the kW array type and size you require, and be aware of the superior Energy Harvesting of DAT's have over Fixed Tilted Racking.
