Consider a 250 Wp rated crystalline silicon PV module. It results from a manufacturing process that consumes 8kWh/Wp of PV module.

a) What is the total energy consumed (in kWh) during the production of the module?

Assume that the PV module is used in a location where it gives an average annual PV yield of 500kWh over its lifetime of 30 years. Also assume that the Balance of System (BOS) requires a total of 1000kWh for its production.

b) What is the Energy Yield Ratio of the entire PV system over its lifetime of 30 years?
