Said Harry and posted a link to a chart from a vendor of solar panels.
Excuse me for pointing out the bleeding obvious, Harry, but the bits of Wales I frequented were hilly and frequently/usually covered in mist/cloud and rain.
From your link, it appears that these hilly, misty & cloudy bits receive exactly the same amount of incident solar radiation as every other bit of Wales.
I suspect your chart may be a tad inaccurate, Harry.
The hilly nature of the terrain in Wales and its proximity to the
Atlantic tends to encourage cloud cover. Even so, the south-western
coastal strip of Pembrokeshire manages an average annual sunshine total
of over 1700 hours, which is comparable to the 1750 hours achieved by
many places along the south coast of England. The dullest parts of Wales
are the mountainous areas, with average annual totals of less than 1200

It is a "Solar Insolation Map of the UK" according to its title.
I haven't the foggiest what one of those is.
The units used (kWh/kWp) don't mean anything to me either, but I couldn't be arsed to look up what a kWp is.
It's also a sales brochure, not a scientific document.
Quite so, which gives those in less favoured areas, who would be in greatest need of such a product, a misleading idea of the kWh produced per annum.
Harry could have found something better, I'm sure.

But they are a piss poor way to get from one end of a runway to the other..
