The available time resolution varies by our data product categories, and you can find the options in our API Toolkit. For quick reference, here are some numbers to keep you moving as you explore our data further!
All Solcast API data values are period averages, timestamped in UTC at the end of the averaging period (e.g. data from 1100 to 1130, for 30 minute average, would be timestamped at 1130).
Utility scale solar forecasting and estimated actuals data are available at 5, 10, 15 and 30 minute resolution.
We offer 1-minute resolution data services for forecasting applications where very-short term forecasts are of high importance. Contact us for more information!
Solar Radiation Data forecasting and estimated actuals data are available at 30 minute resolution via the API Toolkit. We do provide higher resolutions of solar radiation data, but these are only available through our Utility Scale Solar data product (5, 10 and 15 minute resolutions available).
Our historical download services also allow you to retrieve data from up to 15 years before present, at 5, 10, 15, 30 or 60 minute resolution. You can find these in the 'historical data request' section of the API Toolkit.
Rooftop Solar forecasting and estimated actuals data are available at 30 minute resolution via the API Toolkit.
