Solar Resource Map of Quebec (GHI), Canada

Project Description

 Solar Resource Map of Quebec (GHI – Global Horizontal Irradiance), Canada

The project delivered a medium resolution solar resource map set of Quebec (province-wide) based on long-term solar climatology data showing average yearly and monthly radiation. Five target areas with the greatest potential for solar power project development were identified. Our high resolution solar resource mapping of these 100 x 100 km areas provided insolation values on latitude-tilted and optimally-tilted surfaces, demonstrating the locations with significant resource potential within these areas. Various PV technologies were evaluated for their electrical generation potential at the specific sites.
