Maps of solar resource potential in Canada

Maps of solar resource potential in Canada This dataset includes daily averages of solar irradiance on tilted surfaces for all of Canada based on the period of 1998 - 2020. The solar irradiance data is available in the following layers at a resolution of about 0.1°x0.1° (~10 km grid spacing) for all of Canada (i.e., 41.6 to 83.1°N, and 52.6 to 141.0°W): - Four fixed tilts, relative to the horizontal plane, of 0° (horizontal), 30°, 60°, and 90° (vertical) - Three fixed tilts, relative to the local latitude 0°, +15°, and -15° - A two-axis tracking surface For each tilt angle, the irradiance values are in kWh/m2 (per day) for the selected time period. The data can be viewed as a map service and by downloading the tabular data included.
