→ Carbon Equivalency
To Calculate the Carbon Equivalent of Solar Photovoltaic production Mana uses the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) published formula:
1,559 lbs CO2/MWh × (4.536 × 10-4 metric tons/lb) × 0.001 MWh/kWh = 7.07 × 10-4 metric tons CO2/kWh
Mana's algorithm takes the aggregate value of all the renewable energy produced in the current year to date, and uses the aggregate kWh value to calculate the carbon equivalent.
