Project Sunroof from Google provides you solar maps of rooftops

People who consider using solar panels to power their homes often find themselves riddled with questions. How many panels they would need? Who would do the installation? And most importantly, how much money would they actually save? Well, Google noticed many people looking for these answers, and decided to come to their rescue.

It has launched a new initiative called Project Sunroof. The tool uses high-resolution satellite imagery of Google Maps to figure out how much sun falls on a particular roof. It then uses the measurements to figure out how many panels you’d need to save on your electric bill. So, what are you waiting for? Just plug in your address and get started!
