This work presents some advanced results of the « Propre.ma » project. The main goal of the project is to draw grid-connected photovoltaic yield maps for all Morocco, the ground calibration uses identical plants installed in partner institutions located in 20 different Moroccan cities. To have monthly calibration corrections as small a possible, the monthly maps before calibration must be as realistic as possible, and above all, the calibration factors undergo the least possible temporal and spatial variations. We present in this work all the data of electricity production (KWh AC) of Ouarzazate city in 2017. An initial comparison between all cities shows that Ouarzazate is ahead and that this data is in perfect agreement with those of Solar Med Atlas. The second result shows that in this city, the monocrystalline technology (mc-Si) is slightly more productive than the polycrystalline (pc-Si). This will be explained shortly with climate states data for the city.
