Obviously they anticipate a much higher CF than at more northernly latitudes, as those numbers yield a CF of ~17%, which is much higher than even commercial tracking systems up here, which are around 14%. That system, would be, perfectly mounted, capable of ~5,360kWh in southern Canada (12%). More typical yield (rooftop) which can be around 9%, would be 4,020kWh.

Isn't that watts you are talking about not Kwh? 7000 watts makes sense but 7000kwh is a total not the rate of output.
