KiloWatt-Hour (kWh)

A unit of energy used to determine power consumption (or power production) in the system. For example, if a solar array has produced a constant 1000W (1kW) for the duration of 5 hours, the total energy production of the solar array is 5000Wh or (5kWh). Electric companies use this unit of measurement to bill their customers for energy used.
