Installed Capacity Question

    Hi all,

    Recently had 20 solar panels ground mounted, I'm just trying to figure out the Installed Capacity for registering my Plant on the Solis Cloud.

    Just wondering does any know a rough guide to calculating this figure?

    Your panels would have a rating. 380watts or 400 watts (or there abouts), so then it's just a matter of 20x (your rating) ~ 7.6Kwp or 8Kwp. You'll have to look up your invoice to know what the panel size you bought.

    Or as they are ground mounted take a photo of the back of them (good that you have it anyway for the future). And if Solis asks what size is the inverter, again that's on the side of it if not listed somewhere else. Or in the manual you got.

    I have the exact same set up. Mine is 20 Ja panels @ 455kw so that gave me a 455 x 20 =9.1kwh system. Mine is also ground mounted. You might have a smaller panel though, so you'd need to check. M inverter is a 6kw as tha is all ESBN allows on a single phase. Good luck with the system. Mine is hugely effective. Ground mounted systems are highly efficient.

    Thanks for the replies, the panels are 20 x 410 Watt Longi Solar.

    surely the answer is 6kW as you'll never produce 8.2kW (20x0.41)
