[ANN] SolarUtils-0.3 released - wrappers for NREL SOLPOS and SPECTRL2 algorithms

Mark Mikofski-2
This update adds two convenience functions:

  1. get_solposAM(location, datetimes, weather) - returns solar positions and airmass for arbitrary sequence of datetime vectors [year, month, day, hour, minute second].
  2. get_solpos8760(location, year, weather) - returns 8760 annyual hourly solar position and airmass for given year.
For example:
>>> location = [35.56836, -119.2022, -8.0]
>>> datetimes = [
...     (datetime.datetime(2013, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0)
...      + datetime.timedelta(hours=h)).timetuple()[:6]
...     for h in range(1000)]
>>> weather = [1015.62055, 40.0]
>>> angles, airmass = get_solposAM(location, datetimes, weather)

Thanks!
