I wonder how different the ''peak'' ratings are from the average
ratings. It would seem that the average rating is more important.
Inverters would seem the way to go for night time power requirements.

Are some cells more efficient than others....newbie here....

average rating (daily production) is in kWh, peak ratings are in kW.
Don't confuse the units. 200 watts in 5 hours of full sun = 1 kWh of

 2 days ago I had a 6 kWh day, yesterday I had a 1 kWh day.

So... given that your peak production is 1.2 kw, I guess
a back of envelope would be to take that number and
multiply it by 3 for a daily total?

(more in sunny areas, less in norther/rainy...)

Does that not assume only 3hrs of sunlight?
