Abstract

A solar energy climatology for N Carolina was developed using radiation data from the six SOLMET stations in the state. The climatology provides information needed to design solar powered space and water heating systems, and evaluate their performance. It specifies the distribution of monthly average daily total radiation on a horizontal surface, relationships between radiation and temperature for an average heating season, and the variability of radiation within a season.-from Authors
