Analyzing Solar Resource Data from NREL API in R

Hi! I would like to share my guided project for working with API resources in R.

Here are some changes I made to the guided project to make it my own:

  • Retrieved data for the White House and the largest solar farm in Washington State, Lind Solar Farm;
  • Compared solar resources of two locations using ggarrange function

Do you think there are more intuitive way of making comparisons for the comparison graph? If you have any ideas and thoughts on how to improve the visualization, I would really appreciate it!

You can also use the custom function in this project to figure out how much solar resource your house/apartment has! (woot-woot!)

I uploaded this guided project on my personal blog, Concious Table.
