Points solar radiation in an hourly basis for a whole year.

Hi there,

I have been working lately on setting the points solar radiation routine to calculate the 8760 values of solar radiation in the year for a set of points in a single run.

The routine in ArcGIS 10.1 does it already for as much as an hourly scale but on a daily basis and only delivering apparently those hours with solar irradiance (not exactly the 24 hours)

To solve this, it is necessary to run the algorithm for every day of the year + identifying the hours of daylight of the day and do the correction to obtain 8760. Is there a way to edit the source code or do it so in a simpler manner?
