Geographic analysis of photovoltaic (PV) performance factors across large regions can help relevant stakeholders make informed, and reduced risk decisions. High temporal and spatial resolution meteorological data from the National Solar Radiation Database are used to investigate performance and cost as an effect of varying module characteristics such as the temperature coefficients, mounting configurations and coatings.
