Abstract An investigation of the global solar radiation analysis in Gaza, Palestine was explored for the period from 2002 to 2006. Analyses are based on weather data comprise, Monthly mean daily sunshine duration and monthly mean daily global solar radiation obtained from the Palestinian meteorological department. In this study, the maximum and minimum calculated values of monthly average daily global solar radiation are found 337 W m-2 and 71 W m-2 in July and January respectively. The mean annual solar radiation is about 1943.6 KWh m-2 year-1 (222 W m-2). Net longwave radiation (Rnl) was smallest in winter due to reduced reflection and variety between 32 W m-2 in February and about 59 W m-2 in June over the study period. This study shows that, Gaza receives abundant solar energy that can be usefully harnessed to generation of electric power. Linear regression analysis revealed a strong relationship between the variables, estimated solar radiation, and sunspots number in some months.
