Solar Tower and Dish Power 10km Grid, United States, 1998-2005

This raster layer contains monthly and annual average solar irradiation resource potential for the continental United States averaged over surface cells of 0.1 degrees in both latitude and longitude (about 10 km in size). This layer is a part of a collection of GIS data containing renewable and electric energy information for the U.S., including data on transmission lines, power plants and electricity substations.This raster dataset provides information on the solar resource potential for the continental United States. The insolation values represent the average solar energy available to a concentrating collector on a 2-axis tracker, such as a dish or a power tower.
