Monthly


Contains information about the specific month covered in the span of the data request.  Attribute MonthNumber can be used to parse the full response.  Summary insolation fields represent the total for the portion of the year covered in the data request.  For instance if the StartTime = “2011-11-11T00:00:00-08:00” and the EndTime = “2011-11-13T00:00:00-08:00”, the summary fields will only return total insolation between StartTime and EndTime and not for the full calendar month (in this case, November).
