which city receives highest amount of sunshine per year?




YUMA, ARIZONA




According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Yuma is the sunniest city on earth with 11 hours of sunlight each day and more than 4,000 hours of sunny weather every year.

The two major areas with the highest sunshine duration, measured as annual average, are the central and the eastern Sahara Desert—covering vast, mainly desert countries such as Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Chad, and Niger—and the Southwestern United States (Arizona, California, Nevada).[4] The city claiming the official title of the sunniest in the world is Yuma, Arizona, with over 4,000 hours (about 91% of daylight time) of bright sunshine annually,[4][5] but many climatological books suggest there may be sunnier areas in North Africa
