The sun delivers about 1kilowatt of power per square meter. Once this is converted to electricity there is about 100 to 150watts of power.Thats only 10% to 15% of what we started with. So we need to gather this sunlight as efficient as possible.

Below you will find a chart to show how much solar radiation the US receives. Also how much electricity per year per meter can be generated.

This chart is showing the Daily solar radiation received by a two-axis tracking flat panel

This chart is measuring **kWh/m²/day**. So for **3.8 kWh/m²/day**.

Go to link for a complete list.

**1,387kW** is the total energy that is received for one year, for a one meter heliostat in NJ.

**3.8** kWh/m²/day * 365 day = **1,387kWatts**

If you could take this 1,387kW and convert it straight to the electrical energy it would power your house for two months.
