## Solar Farm Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Solar Farm Profit.

SP = P * T * ESP - C

- Where SP is the Solar Farm Profit ($/day)
- P is the total solar power generation (kW)
- T is the average hours of sun per day
- ESP is the selling price of electricity ($/kWh)
- C are the daily costs ($/day)

To calculate solar farm profit, multiply the power generation by the total time of generation, then multiply by the selling price of electricity, and finally subtract running costs.

## How to Calculate Solar Farm Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Solar Farm Profit.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the total solar power generation (kW). In this example, the total solar power generation (kW) is given as 2500 .
- Next, determine the average hours of sun per day. For this problem, the average hours of sun per day is given as 8 .
- Next, determine the selling price of electricity ($/kWh). In this case, the selling price of electricity ($/kWh) is found to be .56.
- Next, determine the daily running costs. In this case, the daily running costs are $200.00.
- Finally, calculate the Solar Farm Profit using the formula above:

SP = P * T * ESP – C

Inserting the values from above yields:

SP = 2500 * 8 * .56 – 200 = 11000 ($/day)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total solar power generation (kW) = 5000

average hours of sun per day = 7

selling price of electricity ($/kWh) = 1.25

daily running costs ($) = 5000

Entering these values and solving gives:

SP = 5000 * 7 * 1.25 – 5000 = 38750 ** **($/day)
