An approach is presented to the solar radiation possible to obtain in the provinces El Oro, Loja and Zamora Chinchipe, South Region of Ecuador (RSE) using images of the Geostationary Satellite GOES-East, and the data of global radiation obtained in a net of five automatic stations located in the RSE from which a theoretical model was obtained, by means of multiple regression analysis among the bands RGB (Red, Green, Blue) of the Visible and Infrared images of the GOES and the instantaneous data of global radiation in the stations. The data of global radiation are presented for an independent data set of selected days, as well as maps of global radiation in the RSE for the selected days. They are compared with results obtained by means of theoretical models. Conclusions are given and recommendations are formulated.
