Project Sunroof: mapping the planet’s solar energy potential, one rooftop at a time

 map the solar energy potential power
Google's Project Sunroof is helping homeowners map the solar energy potential power to their home.

The cost of solar power is at a record low. A typical solar home can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars per year on their electricity bill.  But, as a volunteer with the Boston-based solar program Solarize Massachusetts and a solar homeowner myself, I’ve always been surprised at how many people I encounter who think that “my roof isn’t sunny enough for solar,” or “solar is just too expensive.” Certainly many of them are missing out on a chance to save money and be green.

Check out the blog for the project here.
