Getting an error in the mail too when trying to download the data via the NSRDB Interface.

Please provide a solution for the same.

Cheers!

Hi Aditya,

We are investigating an issue with NSRDB downloads for South Asia locations that should be fixed soon.

Best regards,
Paul.

Hi Paul,

I've encountered a similar issue trying to download from Russia, although other downloads were fine. Was it an one-off issue due to factors outside of the host's reach, or is there an issue linked with downloads from that region?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Paul,

Russia is outside of the area covered by the NREL NSRDB, at least for now. For information about where to find weather data to use with SAM, see sam.nrel.gov/weather-data .

Best regards,
Paul.
