The Solar Ark by Sanyo

In 2005, Japanese electronics company Sanyo has built what is probably the world's coolest solar photovoltaic power generation facility: the Solar Ark. The building is 315 m (1,033 ft) long and 37 m (121 ft) tall and has over 5,000 solar battery panels. It can generate 630 kW of electricity, enough to power 200 homes for a year.

kW isn't a time measure. You can't power anything for a period of time with a kW. A kilowatt HOUR, however, is a useful measure and therefore that's what the electric company bills you for.
