The article discusses basic types of photovoltaic modules and their use in various configurations of home power plants. The astronomical conditions and estimation of intensity of solar radiation outside the Earth's atmosphere as a factor determining the scope of electricity production are described. The construction of a stationary photovoltaic installation with a capacity of 4.16kW, consisting of 16 polycrystalline photovoltaic panels cooperating with the Fronius inverter is presented. Subsequently, 7 very similar installations were analysed. It was ensured that: analysed installations were oriented southwards with a maximum 2-minute deviation, an angle of panels was similar and ranged from 35 to 38º. Installations have been installed in the same geographical area, at a short distance from one another. Energy produced was monitored during a monitoring of an electricity production process. In an empirical part of this article, energy yields obtained in 2017 are shown. Based on collected data, the analysis showing selected aspects of production, including its repeatability in analysed periods of time, was conducted. Obtained data and mathematical relationships allow to develop models for prediction and diagnostics of plant performance.
