There are two basic types of solar panels:

How much energy will your solar panels produce?
The potential kilowatt-hour output can be found by multiplying the number of sun hours per day in your geographic area (average of 3.5 per day in northeastern Pennsylvania) by the kilowatt-hour output of the system. This number represents the maximum potential of a properly installed system in a location that has ideal solar conditions. Actual output may vary depending on site factors.
(Number of sun hours) X (System output in kWh) = Total kWh
To properly evaluate the kilowatt-hour output of a solar generation system, the proposed location of the photovoltaic panels needs to be evaluated using a solar pathfinder. A pathfinder evaluation takes into consideration the site’s geographic location, collector orientation and shading potential. The evaluation gives the number of sun hours available on a monthly basis for the entire year.
