Dear Pythonistas and solar power enthusiasts,

The maintainers are happy to announce a new release of pvlib python: software for simulating performance of photovoltaic solar energy systems.

See what's new for v0.9.2:

Releases are available from PyPI and the conda-forge channel:

Note: you can now install from conda-forge using either "pvlib" or "pvlib-python"

Read the Documentation:

Report issues & contribute:

Highlights:
* Albedo can be entered as a column in weather DataFrame when running a model chain. This can be used to enter a time series instead of just monthly values.
* A new function calc_surface_orientation() returns tracker surface tilt and azimuth when given tracker rotation and axis tilt.
* There's a new example in the gallery to calculate backside irradiance using pvfactors.
* Dropped support for Python-3.6 and increased required pandas to v0.25.0
* A new build system that conforms to PEP 517 & PEP518
* There were several new contributors.

Thank you for using pvlib python!
