If you're an installer or designer who wants to use the most up-to-date weather data available, you're probably familiar with Solargis, but may not have been able to use their data before when designing projects with HelioScope. Now you won't have to puzzle out how to use this data any longer!
Solargis has made their TMY series data completely compatible with HelioScope. This means that you can directly import their TMY P50, P90, and other weather files directly to our weather database to use in your projects.
If you've been wondering how to find more recent weather information than TMY2/3 ground weather data or Prospector satellite data, or assessing your actual-versus-modeled yield of your solar array, Solargis provides an easy and high quality way to model the output of your solar arrays.
The time series weather files that Solargis provides are an extremely useful tool for modeling energy production of solar power plants. When doing due diligence, time series weather data can be used to understand expected year-to-year variability, seasonal or intraday energy generation, and to calculate P90 (or other Pxx) energy estimates. Solargis' data has been validated by comparing their model with high quality ground weather data in more than 220 sites across all type of climates. You can find their validation report linked here, as well as a set of independent comparisons here.
Ask the Solargis team for information on how you can obtain HelioScope-compatible weather files. You can also learn more about the full weather files they offer on their website: https://solargis.com/
