"The Green" Column from the table above. ratings use the following formula : V x A = W For example : the value you find is indicated at 2. That means that this appliance is using 575 Watts per hour. If any rating on your equipment is in "VA" (Volt / Amps) insert the VA value.5 A x 230 Volts = 575 Watts. ( 1 KW = 1000W ) If you cannot obtain any values. We would advise that the user should look first at all the appliance rating plates they want to run on solar power ( which is usually fixed at the rear or bottom panel of the appliance ) or at the manual to obtain the correct " Watt" rating.5A 2.
