Google’s Project Sunroof has been helping consumers and homeowners decide if solar is viable for them. Today Google has advanced the project by adding the data explorer tool.
Today we’re excited to be taking Project Sunroof a step further by launching a new data explorer tool to enable solar estimates for entire communities, in addition to individual homes, by leveraging 3D rooftop geometry from Google Earth to estimate the solar potential for millions of rooftops in America.
The data explorer tool is already recieving acclaim.
Cooper Martin, Program Director of the Sustainable Cities Institute, League of Cities:
“Our Sustainable Cities Institute program aims to provide guidance and information for governments that want to pursue sustainability and ensuring that solar is easy, fast and cheap to install. Sunroof’s Data Explorer tool can help inform city stakeholders about the opportunity of solar energy, and the work that is needed to support solar-friendly policies. ”
Take a look in your area and explore the tool to see the insights.
We have found from our research that over 90% of the homes on the Treasure Coast and Space Coast are likely to be solar viable!
