I am using the points solar radiation tool. When I check the box for "create outputs for each interval", for a full 24 hours within a day, it doesn't create the appropriate number of columns in the attribute table. For instance, for a 6 minute interval, it only create 149 columns, VS 240. Why is that? Is it because those values are zero?

That location, for that time of year, will only receive circa 6*149=894 minutes of sunshine.

If start time = 0 and end time = 24, then t0 will be sun rise and t1 will be sunrise + 6 minutes.
