The maps represent yearly sum of global irradiation on horizontal and optimally inclined surface, 10-years average of the period 1981-1990 [kWh/m2]. The same colour legend represents also potential solar electricity [kWh/kWp] generated by a 1 kWp system per year with photovoltaic modules mounted at an optimum inclination and assuming system performance ratio 0.75.
The maps can be downloaded by right-clicking and saving target onto your disc.
