    You have to use an erconanometer.

    Put a digital multimeter set for a DC voltage range higher than the Voc rating on the back of the panel across the positive and negative connections, and set the panel in the sun.

    You can actually get a fairly accurate reading even if it’s cloudy or your panel is not aimed directly at the oncoming sun rays. Measuring the short circuit amps is a little more demanding.
