EnviroAtlas - Average Direct Normal Solar resources kWh/m2/Day by 12-Digit HUC for the Conterminous United States

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

The annual average direct normal solar resources by 12-Digit Hydrologic Unit (HUC) was estimated from maps produced by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy (February 2009). The original data was from 10km, satellite modeled dataset (SUNY/NREL, 2007) representing data from 1998-2005. The 10km data was converted to 30m grid cells, and then zonal statistics were estimated for a final value of average kWh/m2/day for each 12-digit HUC. For more information about the original dataset please refer to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) website at www.nrel.gov/gis/data_solar.html. This dataset was produced by the US EPA to support research and online mapping activities related to EnviroAtlas. EnviroAtlas (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas) allows the user to interact with a web-based, easy-to-use, mapping application to view and analyze multiple ecosystem services for the contiguous United States. The dataset is available as downloadable data (https://edg.epa.gov/data/Public/ORD/EnviroAtlas) or as an EnviroAtlas map service. Additional descriptive information about each attribute in this dataset can be found in its associated EnviroAtlas Fact Sheet (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas/enviroatlas-fact-sheets).
