English term or phrase: Solar Irradiance
The text is about a hand-held tool for solar energy professionals to measure shading on a given site.

I believe the correct term is "irradiancia solar". However, looking at some reference material from client, they have been using "irradiación solar"; which I believe it is different.... Am I right?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
