How much power do I need for running a 150x150km domain with 1km resolution for 24 hours? Thank you.

It depends in which time you want it to finish. If you allow several hours for running time, I guess regular desktop cpu of newer generation (4 or 6 cores I7) can do that. You will probably need one or two levels of nesting to reach that resolution without troubles depending on input data... It also somewhat depends on number of vertical levels, physics used and so on.
