Developer Resources

The Solcast API is a powerful tool that provides developers with programmatic access to real-time and historical weather data from Solcast.


Our REST API allows a wide variety of languages and tools to import data with their native HTTP client. This is the most widely used and flexible method for developers to integrate with.

Our API documentation includes code examples in over a dozen popular programming languages and a Postman collection to get started easily.
