True, but this is the way I look at it (and I believe this is what Supes was trying to say as well). Solar energy absorbed over time is what makes Kryptonians so strong. Supes has been exposed to it from an infant to an adult which is over 30 plus years. Super Girl on the other hand was exposed as a teenager which means she could absorb it a faster rate than a baby but her exposure time has only been a few years (maybe even less since her ship was stuck in the middle of an Asteroid for part of the trip to Earth). Since Superman has had the longest overall exposure then he theoretically should be the stronger but has just been holding back (according to him) when dealing with Super girl. Thats just my opinion... I could be wrong.

Hmmm, from what I gathered in these scans is Supes only started getting his powers when he was 16 or so, so all the time he spent under Earths Sun before really doesn't matter (perhaps at that age his body started storing and changing the solor rays). It's his upbringing that makes him hold back unlike Kara but if he did ever let lose he would be more powerful than her.
But this brings up some interesting points, if Kryptonians only develop their powers under a yellow sun at around age 16. Then Kara only absorbed yellow rays from age 16 to however old she is now. So Supes should be stronger due to longer exposeur ( from 16 to...just how old is Supes in the comics anyway), but if those solar panels somehow gave concentrated solar rays then she might be more powerful.
