Solar Integration Data and Tools
NREL provides the energy community with solar data and tools to study the operational impacts of solar on the electric power grid.
Modeled solar data for energy professionals—such as transmission planners, utility planners, project developers, and university researchers—who perform solar integration studies and need to estimate power production from hypothetical solar power plants.
The next generation of modeled solar data with higher temporal and spatial resolution with public access to reduce the costs and risks of integrating solar power systems into the electric power grid.
Current and historical solar resource data and tools to support the integration of solar technologies on the grid.
