Solar Powered Camera In Canada?

A member is looking to deploy a solar powered camera in Canada (near Montreal).

Does anyone have experience in this region?

A key factor in solar power is the worst case insulation value (see our Solar Surveillance Guide).

The more likely sunless days are, the harder it is to do solar and the lower the insulation value.

Near Montreal, the value appears to be 2.4, as shown below:

By contrast, the US Southwest can be double that or more.

I suspect it's possible, given it can be done in Albany NY and Seattle WA, too relatively sunless areas. For example, see our chart from the solar guide:

Obviously, cost goes up.

Anyone with direct Canadian solar surveillance experience can confim / deny / add color?
