North America PV Power Forcast


#1

When I try to pull the PV forecast form my location it returns all 0’s.

https://api.solcast.com.au/pv_power/forecasts?longitude=39.970&latitude=-86.150&capacity=1000&api_key=

The demo works but my North America location does not. Any idea why.

The radiation demo works for my location.

Also, what is the status of this project / service?

Looks interesting!

We are still in public beta at this stage but there will be announcements later this year regarding our pricing as well as additional API features and services.

Regarding your problem, for North America, it looks like you have your longitude and latitude mixed up. Eg, -86 latitude is near the south pole. You want the following API call I believe.

Hope that helps.
