    Google Roofs Finds 80% Of Buildings Solar Suitable

    Google’s New Tool Says Nearly 80 Percent of Roofs Are Sunny Enough for Solar Panels; The company’s Project Sunroof lets you look up your house and helps you decide whether to invest in your own clean power plant.

    Michael Reilly, March 15, 2017 (MIT Technology Review)

    “…In a new expansion of its Project Sunroof, [Google] has built 3-D models of rooftops in all 50 states, looked at the trees around people’s homes, considered the local weather, and figured out…that nearly 80 percent of all buildings the team modeled are ‘technically viable’ for solar panels, meaning they catch enough rays each year to make generating electricity feasible…[Houston leads among the cities assessed with as much as 18,940 gigawatt-hours of free energy from the sun just waiting to be generated each year…[A gigawatt-hour translates] to about a year’s supply of electricity for 90 homes...Sunroof lets you search for your house, suggests how large a solar array you might consider putting on your roof, and estimates how much energy it will generate—as well as how much it would cost to lease or buy the panels…” click here for more
