Python Script for SolCast Rooftop Accounts


I’ve made available a Python script on Github which

  • downloads and stores SolCast forecasts for Rooftop accounts (incl. the newly allowed split array configurations) in SQLite and/or Influx
  • using pvlib, it can do the same with OpenWeatherMap cloud data (and German centric MOSMIX data of Deutscher Wetterdienst, posting cloud and GHI data)

In a couple of months I’ll probably compare the forecast quality - but it’s already now obvious that most likely, this will shame the standard weather services … :slight_smile:

The script uses pysolcast library - big thanks to @mcaulifn!

Have fun, Stefan
