How much energy will each panel produce? We estimate that in a normal year each panel will produce around 475 kilowatt hours but that is not guaranteed. It will depend on the amount of sunshine we have in a given year.
How many panel subscriptions can I buy? We would like as many members as possible to have the opportunity to participate in this program but we have a limited number of solar panels, therefore during the initial offering members can buy the lesser A) 10 panel subscriptions or B) 50% of their annual consumption. (Example: Member uses 4750 kwh per year they can buy expected production of 2375 kwh/475 = 5 panel subscriptions)
Will there be an opportunity to buy more panel subscriptions in the future? Maybe, it depends on the subscription rate of our initial offering.
