He did not post any of the three above terms exactly. I read it as AH with a typo.

If you are into corrections there is some atrocious spelling and grammar on this forum that needs correcting.

Actually, your solar will produce 200 Amp hours of energy, not power. They are rated as producing 825 Watts (or about 60 Amps at charging voltage) of power.
