Sun hours/Day

Helping you know how much sunlight you receive in a day


In searching for a way to find sun hours/day, I found a really good source listing several American cities and the amount of insolation in kilowatt-hours per square meter per day. So, if you are wanting to add a solar power source to your home or business, this will give you an idea of how efficient it can be.
