5MW Solar Farm Energy Harvesting & PayBack Calculator

Change the Panel Watts, Array Racking and Latitude Location for better accuracy of this calculator!

This calculator does not allow for Inverter, transition or parasitic losses.

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

 :: SOLAR FARM - Energy HARVESTING potential ::

Enter Solar Panel Quantity:

 Modules/Panels. 

 Using Longi 435W, 144cell half panel technology, requires 1'700 Less panels !

Years to Break-Even Period: 

 Years  Based on figures entered above.

Solar Farm Capital Expense: 

$per Watt  Based on Total cost ÷ by system kWh.

 Change 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!

Use the above calculator to evaluate the kWh array type and size you require, be aware DAT is superior at Energy Harvesting than any other Racking type.

Below Module Racking options are commonly used in Solar Farm's !

DAT-15 module holds 15x 380W panel Array =5.7kWh peak DC energy.

DAT-15 module holds 15x 435W panel Array =6.5kWh peak DC energy.

DAT-24 module holds 24x 380W panel Array =9.1kWh peak DC energy.

DAT-24 module holds 24x 435W panel Array =10.4kWh peak DC energy.

 

SAT holds 60x 6 Rows, 380W panel Array (image) =137kWh/p peak DC energy.
