Frequently Asked Question
How Much Power Will a Solar Module Produce in my Location?
Insolation Map Index
The numbers listed on these maps are the average worst case insolation
hours. Insolation hours provide a way of predicting the output of a solar
module at a specific location. This data has typically been gathered over
a number of years from weather stations located throughout the world. For
example, if you have an SX-60 solar module that produces 3.5A peak power
in a location that has 3 hours of insolation, it can be said that the SX-60
will produce 10.5AH a day.
A word of caution. This insolation information should be used
only for estimates. Solar systems should not have a final design based
on this information. This map does take into account small climate changes
and may not be 100% accurate for all locations. EcoVantage has a vast resource
of databases that have specific cities listed with accurate insolation
data. Please allow us to verify any critical design before purchasing.
