What do MWp and MWh actually stand for? 🧐

You will often come across the abbreviations "MWp" and "MWh" in our posts and on our website. But what do these abbreviations actually mean?

MWp: Megawatt Peak 💡

The maximum electrical output of a solar system with optimum solar irradiation is referred to as peak capacity or peak output. This is measured in kilowatt peak (kWp) or, for larger systems, in megawatt peak (#MWp). It enables a comparison of the electrical performance of modules and systems.

MWh: Megawatt Hour 💡

The unit megawatt hour (#MWh) is used to measure energy production and consumption. One megawatt hour corresponds to 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh).
