I'm using pysam.ResourceTools.FetchResourceFiles to get weather data. This tool saves the data to disk then reads it into memory. Is there a way to skip the write operation and just read the data into memory (e.g. assign it to SolarResource.solar_resource_data)?
The 'pvsamv1' module has two ways of inputting weather data, as documented in
. You can read it from a weather file in the SAM CSV format by setting the value of 'solar_resource_file' to the file's path and name, or you can use the 'solar_resource_data' input to set the values without reading them from a file.
Thanks. So if I want to avoid downloading and reading a .csv I need to use the psm v3 endpoint instead of FetchResourceFiles. Is FetchResourceFiles under the same RateLimit restrictions as the PSM V3 endpoint?
