Potential for Photovoltaic (Solar) Power in the U.S.

This is a map showing the annual potential solar photovoltaic (i.e. solar power) resource for the United States. Basically, the closer to red the higher the potential, and the closer to purple (well, green on this map) the lower the potential for solar energy production.

Here is the key for the map.

Not much more than that. Just want to save this map for my reference. Kind of cool. 


  1. There's a chance you qualify for a new solar program.
    Find out if you are qualified now!

  2. The Solar Power is considered as the new energy for us and it is green power for the environment. We should encourage more people using it in the life.
