Project Sunroof – Google New Mapping and Analysis Tool for Solar Customer

Project Sunroof
Planning to setup solar panel, but have little knowledge or no knowledge. Google has brought the solution to make installation of solar panel easy and understandable.

Project Sunroof is Google new tool for mapping and analyzing the possible option for decreasing energy bill, by helping to calculate the best solar plan for you.

Just enter your address, Project Sunroof looks up your home in Google Maps and combines that information with other databases to create your personalized roof analysis. Project Sunroof computes how much sunlight hits your roof in a year. It takes into account:

  • Google’s database of aerial imagery and maps
  • 3D modeling of your roof
  • Shadows cast by nearby structures and trees
  • All possible sun positions over the course of a year
  • Historical cloud and temperature patterns that might affect solar energy production

Project Sunroof recommends an installation size to generate close to 100% of your electricity use, based on roof size, the amount of sun hitting the roof, and your electricity bill.

Project Sunroof uses current solar industry pricing data to run the numbers on leasing, taking a loan, or buying solar panels for your house to help you choose what’s best for you.
