The sun is the primary source of energy. The sun, which is the largest member of the solar system,is a sphere of intensely hot gaseous matter having a diameter of 1.30 x 109 m, and at an average distance 1.495 x 1011 from the earth. An definite knowledge of the solar radiation distribution at a particular geographical location is of huge importance for the progress and development of many solar energy devices and for estimates of their performance as well as install new solar power plant. In this study, the measured or estimate data of global solar radiation on a horizontal surface and number of Bright Sunshine Hours (BSH) for Gujarat was analyzed of different locations. The solar energy potential (BSH) of several locations in Gujarat is received by compiling data from Agricultural Universities,Anand, S.K.Nagar, Navsari and Junagadh. These Universities are located in different region central Gujarat,North Gujarat,South Gujarat and Saurashtra respectively. Forecasting of power generation from weibull probability density function. Measured data put in the equation of weibull probability density function and find out shape parameter and scale parameter. After apply the Statistical test Corelation-coefficient (R2 ) and analysis the data for preference of selective locations.
