Benefits of Solar
How many New York homes can be powered by 18 megawatts of solar energy?
According to SEIA, around 3,100 homes would be powered emission-free by the output of 18 MWs at Cayuga Solar. However, the average number of homes powered per MW of PV varies from state to state due to a number of factors including:
Average sunshine (also called insolation)
Average household electricity consumption
Temperature and wind
The average number of homes powered per megawatt of PV for a given state is simply the quotient of the average PV system performance estimate and the average annual household consumption.
