Measured monthly energy production of a 12-window bundle (Array F, producing 35.3 kWh in December 2021) mounted on a north-facing vertical wall of Murdoch Greenhouse versus the predicted monthly energy output (23 kWh) of a conventional PV or BIPV installation of identical installed capacity (0.4752Wp) also mounted in the same geometric orientation, in Perth climate. (a) Monthly AC energy production data predicted by NREL's PVWatts calculator, using installed generation capacity identical to that of Array F; (b) measured monthly energy harvest (Array F, during summer of 2021-2022) versus the predicted amounts; (c) monthly energy output of the same Array F recorded during December of 2022 (among other north-facing wall-mounted window arrays, last 3 windows from Room 4 not shown); the dataset is reproduced directly from the graphical output of Enphase online interface, confirming that the same energy output trend was maintained by Array F during late 2022, compared with the data from parts (a) and (b).
