Shining On: A Primer on Solar Radiation Data

    Research output: NRELMarketing


    Solar radiation data provide information on how much of the sun's energy strikes a surface at a location on earth during a particular time period. The data give values of energy per unit of area. By showing naturally occurring changes in the amount of solar radiation over the course of days, months, and years, these data determine the amount of solar radiation for a location.
