[EnergyPlus_Support] RE: how to get surface incident solar radiation energy/rate
advices from your experienced E+ experts are greatly appreciated!

I know that I can specify "Surface Outside Face Incident Solar Radiation Rate per Area [W/m2](Hourly)" as a output variable, but I need to manually multiply this value for a given surface with the surface's area in Excel to get "Surface Outside Face Incident Solar Radiation Rate [W](Hourly)" for the surface, and then sum this value for all exterior surfaces to get the overall incident solar radiation on building facade ...
This is just not a smart way to work.
So, may I ask if there is an output variable that can report "Surface Outside Face Incident Solar Radiation Rate/Energy [W/J](Hourly)".
If not, how to do the above calculation in an efficient way in E+?
Thank you in advance!
