Canadian Solar Maps by Province


Solar maps of Canadian provinces based on monthly data provided by NRCan.

The maps above give the mean solar energy yield i.e. DC output of PV modules – on a 2-axis tracking system. (i.e. following the sun all the time). The calculations take into account the average temperature and its effect on PV efficiency.

The maps are based on a 10 km x 10 km grid, i.e. each ‘pixel’ represents an area of 10 x 10 km,  an extremely fine resolution.

The maps below provide for each Canadian province the average solar energy yield ( DC output of PV modules) from various mounting systems: Fixed, Vertical-Axis Tracking,  Horizontal Axis Tracking,  2-axis tracking.
