Solar Resource Map of Ontario (GHI), Canada

Project Description

Solar Resource Map of Ontario (GHI- Global Horizontal Irradiance)

This project delivered a comprehensive map and data set of the solar resource in Ontario for a typical year. Deliverables included maps of five target areas, with a resolution of 1 sq. km, showing insolation incident on a horizontal surface, direct normal radiation (DNR) and radiation incident on a latitude tilted surface. Prospective sites were nominated. The expected power production was calculated at each site.
