When the sun is in the zenith and the sky is perfectly clear, the solar power we receive on the surface of the earth is roughly 1 kW per square meter (on a horizontal surface that is normal to the direction of the sun).

Calculate the average solar power per square meter (in Watts) on a horizontal surface for a day when the sun goes through the zenith at noon.

The sun goes through the zenith exactly twice a year on latitudes that are close to the equator. Take the angle to the sun into account.
