A typical home may require a total of 2.19E+3 kW*hr of energy per month. Suppose you would like to obtain this energy from sunlight, which has an average daylight intensity of 1.03E+3 W/m2. Assuming that sunlight is available 8.03 hr per day, 24 days per month (accounting for cloudy days), and that you have a way to store energy from your collector when the Sun isn't shining, determine the smallest collector size that will provide the needed energy, given a conversion efficiency of 27.4 %.
