ABSTRACT: This research work presents the analysis of Solar Energy in Minna and feasible utilization for power generation. Daily sun duration and minimum and maximum temperature was taken for two months, solar radiation varies according to season of the year. The extraterrestrial and solar radiation were computed for month of July and August as Ra=8.133MJm-2day-1 and Rs=1.108MJm-2day-1 and Ra=9.256MJm-2day-1 , Rs=1.212mJm-2day-1 respectively. Considering present socio-economic environmental factors of conventional power generation, this study has shown a consistent and adequate solar radiation during seasons of intermittent solar radiation thus makes Minna a suitable location for adequate solar energy harvesting systems.
