1. 
Unit of measurement:

Note: Select the unit and insert your available rooftop area as per definition of Net Metering Guideline2018. You can insert value either in Square Meter or Square Feet Unit. 

Area to power generation factor [Default Value is 9 m^{2}/kWp, You can change it] [For detail calculation, Use 'InterRowSpacing Calculator'] 
: 
m^{2}/kWp
