  • 5. 5kw System calculation
  • 6. Layout of Panels
  • 7. Watts Calculator  Creates hour-by-hour performance simulations  Provides estimated monthly and annual energy production in kilowatts and energy value, as well as hourly performance data for the selected location  Users can select a location and choose to use default values, or their own system parameters for size, electric cost, array type, tilt angle, and azimuth angle
  • 8. 10KW/5KW SOLAR SYSTEM  These 10KW and 5 KW solar systems are specially designed to satisfy the electricity needs of Point Park University Lab, as to produce and power some basic loads, like lamp, test bench, etc., which brings you a perfect turnkey solution by exploiting maximum energy, and meanwhile, saves your electricity bill.
