    Your interpretation here is probably incorrect (none / 0) (#17)

    I agree that the article appears to be poorly written. However, I think it's much more likely that the system either produces a mean output of 262 KW or the highest daily mean output was 262 KW. Regardless, there's no way that system only produced 262 KWh in 17 days.

    From my reading, I'd guess that the article was indicating that the highest mean daily output was 262 KW, meaning that the average might fall somewhere in the realm of 175-200 KW. This would transfer to something like 4200-4800 KWh. Of course, that's a very rough guess and I couldn't give a real value without knowing the context of the statement concerning 262 KW.

    Also, from what I've read about the technology (I've had to read about it a fair bit for a class; I'm an engineering student at the University of Michigan), there's no way that system has only produced 262 KWh of energy in the past 17 days unless there was absolutely no wind and 100% cloud cover every day (and as solar panels still produce electricity when there's cloud cover, the system would still probably surpass 15.4 KWh/day, but I'd need to see the actual specs for the system to figure this out).
