Hourly Solar Radiation

Overview

Provides hourly solar radiation from the start of 2015 up to 5 days in the future. Supports contouring.

By Location

Provides the total amount of solar radiation along with an hourly time series within a user-defined timespan at a specific location. The location is represented by a latitude/longitude pair.

GET /hourly-solar-radiation/{latitude}/{longitude}

Query String Parameters (Optional)

The default response contains results in Watts per square meter for the next 24 hours.

Name Type Description Accepted Values / Range Example
start string start time start of 2015 to 5 days in the future 2015-06-01T00:00:00Z
end string end time start of 2015 to 5 days in the future 2015-06-01T03:00:00Z

By Asset

Provides the total amount of solar radiation within a user-defined timespan at the centroid of an asset, along with the area-weighted arithmetic mean and range of solar radiation over that asset. Includes an hourly time series. Time series values are for the centroid of the asset.

GET /hourly-solar-radiation/{asset-uuid}

Query String Parameters (Optional)

The default response contains results in Watts per square meter for the next 24 hours.

Name Type Description Accepted Values / Range Example
start string start time start of 2015 to 5 days in the future 2015-06-01T00:00:00Z
