Growth Accounting/Solow Growth Model

Is there any difference between Solow growth model and the Growth Accounting equation/model?

Are both represented by?:

Y = A + (alpha*capital)+((1-alpha)*labor)

I’ve seen, for Solow, the alpha terms be exponents, but it makes no sense when calculating..

No they are different. One measures growth the other measures output.

Thanks
