My understanding is that as kWH is a measure of energy (1 kWH equivalent to 3.6 MJ) the system is required to capture and store up to 36 MJ per day. The maximum rate of energy usage is not specified (that is J/s or Watts), so make assumptions based on usage requirements (are you running a LED light or a kettle or a whole house or a whole community?).
