Given that the 2021 western fire season is just beginning, I want to (re-)share a blog post from three months ago from the Clean Power Research SolarAnywhere® blog. In this blog post, Patrick Keelin and Marc Perez, Ph.D. provide insight to regional solar irradiance with a special focus on the North American wildfire impact. 

If you are interested in how wildfires impacted solar energy production in the west in 2020, please read, "2020 Regional Solar Deviation Summary & North American Wildfire Smoke Impact Report".  If you are active in planning, operating or forecasting solar power production this summer (2021), you will find the data shared quite interesting.

The "Read More" link seemed pretty easy...

Thanks Joe.

On the bright side, fleecing the taxpayer diminished because less solar energy was produced!
