Example solar panel system in Stoneham, MA

Here is an example production from a 9.5kW residential rooftop system system, which is publicly available via the Enphase Enlighten portal allowing us to see the output of the system. The system is installed 45 degrees West of South, at approximately 30° pitch, using Enphase micro inverters, and Hyundai solar panels (HiS-L280RG Sharp), and installed by Boston Solar.

The graphs show actual energy output in 15 min intervals.

Summer solar production - July

We can see that on a sunny day in summer, overall production is at 56 kWh for the day (5.9 kWh per kW of solar installed). Whilst peak output reached 7.34 kWh around 2pm.

Winter solar production - January

Winter production is much lower, as you would expect in Massachusetts, additionally hindered by afternoon shading on this system. On a sunny day in winter (which is not common) total production was 29.9kWh (3.14 kWh per kW of solar). Whilst peak output reached 6.84 kWh around 1pm.

Solar Panels and Inverter for best ROI

“You mentioned Qcells, It think they would probably be a good balance of quality, performance and affordability. Obviously you would get more generation from using high efficient SunPower or LG, but it would push out the payback period. They might work out to be better ROI in the long run though, not sure, would be interesting to calculate that.”
