- Historic Radiation and Weather
- Historic Rooftop PV Power
- Live Advanced PV Power

Each plan contains details such as the total API requests, including the consumed and remaining request, data parameters, and time granularity. It's crucial to monitor your consumed API calls to ensure continued access to the data you need.
For example, in the case of the live radiation and weather product (image below), if your plan has 5 out out 10 limit requests, it will show that you have already consumed 50% of the requests. The last transaction date will also be accessible in the data below. In addition to that, you can find over 20 data parameters and time granularity available for testing your location.
