solar data

I have been looking hi and lo for solar data up-to-the-minute (up to yesterday anyway). I find lots of data stored for, say, the 80's or from '79 to 93' etc. but nothing showing hourly breakdown of data (not charts) for my region. Closest stations are Sterling VA or Washington Dulles airport.

Any advise pls!

Looking for hours of clear sun or kwH per day etc.

you can search through some of the research from NREL. Here is a live data page from Bluefield State college VA.
NREL: MIDC/Bluefield State College (37.27 N, 81.24 W, 803 m, GMT-5)
