Solar Resource Assessment Made Easy
New Tools for Utility-Scale Solar Prospecting, Resource Measurement, and Development

SP-12 Solar Weather Station

A turnkey hardware solution for solar resource measurement

Weather stations are an important part of developing and operating utility-scale solar generation. Now, Vaisala offers a ready-to-install solar weather station, pre-configured with everything you need for best-practice solar resource assessment.

  • Mast, data logger and instruments all in one shipment / Arrives ready to install using our easy-to-follow instructions.
  • State-of-the-art weather sensors / including the WXT536, Vaisala’s newest multi-weather sensor. Monitor solar insolation and other important environmental parameters to reduce resource uncertainty
  • Rugged, reliable, secure data collection / At the heart of the SP-12 is the Nomad 3 Data Logger. Stands up to harsh weather, resists lightning, keeps data secure, and is easy to install and use.
  • Secure online access to your data / On your own secure SkyServe® web-based dashboard.
  • Flexible configurations / "Basic" configuration omits the WXT536 and monitors fewer parameters. Both standard and basic configurations can be customized.

Solar Time Series Tools

Convenient, subscription-based access to hundreds of bankable solar time series.

Vaisala has just made it much easier for you to access high-quality global solar data for resource assessment.

The Solar Time Series Tools provides access to five global datasets, updated monthly, for one low annual price. Use our online Solar Time Series Tools to quickly visualize and order time series.

  • Minimize development risk / Rapidly compare weather resource data from multiple high-quality datasets to hedge against later resource answer changes by understanding the spread of answers up front
  • Improve energy estimates / Reducing the cost of solar resource data allows better-quality energy estimates to be prepared earlier in the development process
  • Data when you need it / Moving at the speed of solar development long-term time series and TMY data are delivered to you in less than 24 hours so you can meet your tight deadlines
