Reduce uncertainty with higher-resolution typical year solar resource data
Reduce uncertainty with higher-resolution typical year solar resource data

Typical year irradiance datasets (TGY, TDY) summarize solar resource at a location. This data is generated to reflect the most probable (P50) monthly total irradiance, based on a long history of solar resource. SolarAnywhere calculates typical year data from a maximum span of time-series observations for each region—more than twenty-five years in many areas. Our […]
