Capacity Factor

The capacity factor is the ratio of energy generated over a time period (typically a year) divided by the installed capacity.

For example, if we install 100 solar panels rated at 25 watts each, then we will have a capacity of 2500 watts, or 2.5 kW. However, the actual output of the solar panels will depend on a variety of factors such as how much sunlight actually hits them.
