Explanation: For rooftop systems, static alignment to the sun, heat build-up and documentation lead to a lower output than the one stated as theoretically possible at the location. Furthermore, the system does not constantly produce electricity throughout the day, for example in the afternoon when it is not required. This leads to the distinctly lower degree of self-utilisation of a rooftop system and/or to the stated efficiency gain of smartflower POP.

² Degree of self-utilisation: 60% for smartflower POP, see page 7; 30% for rooftop systems is a statistical empirical value.

1 YEAR of smartflower POP
= ca. 4.000 kWh - and thus the average complete annual consumption of a central European household

smartflower POP produces - depending on the region - between 3,400 and 6,200 kWh. Numerical examples are based on approximate consumption values of the listed electrical appliances.
Computational basis: in the middle of the year, twelve hours between sunrise and sunset/day.
