Kilowatt-peak (kWp)

Kilowatt-peak (kWp) is a unit of power used to refer to the maximum output of a solar panel or solar system under ideal conditions. It is a standardized measurement that allows for comparison of different solar panels and systems based on their maximum possible energy production.

KWp values help solar system customers and installers estimate how much energy the system can produce under ideal conditions. For example, a 5 kWp solar system can produce 5 kilowatts of electricity in one hour under ideal conditions.
