it is about ~300 watts when i checked so your reading appears correct. if you need it to charge faster, you can add another power module to get the another ~300 watts.

You are right, the older power array models have 300 watts per module. i verified it by inserting the fifth module and charging current bumped to 12.7 amps which is approx 1500 watts. i have a few of these models and all show the same charging characteristics.

Thanks for the quick and correct information.
