*See the Direct Normal Solar Irradiance map below to check average Irradiance (solar energy) available in your location. The map shows a gradient color coded chart with 9 levels of Irradiance measured in kWh/M2/Day.
If you live in a light-yellow area on the map, or the area typically receives less than 4.9 kWh/m2/day, it may be necessary to connect a second or larger battery.
In the map above, the light yellow color gradient represents an area with low solar energy. The following link will take you to a PDF version of the map directly from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) website: https://www.nrel.gov/gis/assets/pdfs/solar_dni_2018_01.pdf
