by Sean Pool and Lauren Simenauer, in a Science Progress cross-post Too often, when talking about research and innovation on clean energy technologies, policymakers, pundits, and the media tend to assume that the biggest breakthrough will come from a completely novel technology. The discovery of some new and sexy clean energy technology will suddenly change [...]
The most common question I am asked regarding solar panel system sizing would be, “How big is an X kw solar panel system?” Solar modules are generally mounted and wired in what is known as a series configuration or daisy chain.

How much does a 1kw solar panel system generate in power per day?
