*	
Kilowatt (kW): a measure of how
much energy is being produced.
Calculated by multiplying the Voltage
and Current values of a system.
*	
Kilowatt peak (kWp): used to
describe the energy output capability
of a solar electric system under ideal
solar energy conditions (e.g., during
peak times during the middle of the
day).
*	
Kilowatt hour (kWh): the amount of
power delivered over a period of
one hour.
*	
Voltage / Volts (V): the "pressure"
created by electrons flowing through a
system - the greater the pressure, the
more power can be transported in an
electrical wire.
*	
Ampere / Amps (A): the measure of
how much electrical energy is flowing
in an electrical conducting wire.
*	
Feed in tariff (FIT): an agreement
where the utility company buys all
the power generated from your solar
electric system at a set price for a set
period of years.
*	
Inverter(s): devices that convert
the direct current (DC) electricity
generated by the panels into
alternating current (AC) for use in your
home or for export to the grid.
*	
Modules: individual solar panels
that convert sunlight to electricity.
Your system will likely be made up of
multiple modules.
*	
Net metering: an agreement where
the local utility company credits you for
the surplus power produced by your
solar system that is not consumed in
your home.
*	
Grid tie: a system that is connected to
the electrical network. This connection
type allows excess power to be sent
off site in return for payments/credits
from your utility company.
*	
Off grid: solar generation that is
not connected to the electricity
distribution system; often associated
with remote cabins/properties and is
typically a seasonal option or requires
batteries and/or a generator.
