How much power does a 15kW solar system generate?
Solar panels are an excellent option to boost your property’s energy efficiency. In general, a 15 kW system produces 60 kWh a day, and you can utilize this information in different seasons including summer and winter if needed. However, your solar power generation totally depends on the location you reside in and the way the panels are installed on the roof. The panels need to be installed at a place where they receive maximum sunlight so that they can produce maximum output throughout the day.
