English translation:Watt peak
Explanation:
Medium confidence level because I know nothing about the field. But Wikipedia says:

"The international System of Units does not permit the use of suffixes or additional symbols. Despite this rule, in colloquial language, instead of stating "the nominal power of the module is one kilowatt", it is stated "the module has one kilowatt-peak". The terms watt-peak (Wp), kilowatt-peak (kWp)and megawatt-peak (MWp) are also used."
