What is Project Sunroof?

This entry was posted in Solar Services on by .

The solar power initiative called “Project Sunroof” is focused on “mapping the planet’s solar potential, one roof at a time.” This project uses data from Google Maps to precisely calculate shadows from nearby structures and trees in your neighborhood, along with historical temperature measurements and weather patterns to calculate how much money you can expect to save yearly by making use of solar power. If you’re in the market for a new solar roof panel installation or want to upgrade your home’s existing rooftop solar power system, your local professionals can help you better understand Project Sunroof’s projections and information specific to Arizona installations.

How Does Project Solar Help You?

Solar panel costs have decreased about 90% since 2010, according to Wood Mackenzie researchers. With the average cost trending lower than $2.75 per watt, this is a great time to go solar. Project Sunroof’s website maps out solar power installation costs by using Google’s extensive mapping data and computing resources to help you determine the best solar plan for your needs.

How Does It Work?

Project Sunroof will generate a personalized roof analysis for your exact address computing how much sunlight hits your roof yearly. The analysis considers:

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

Select What You Need and Calculate Solar Power Savings

What has captured the attention of homeowners is that Project Sunroof can offer a personally tailored installation to generate almost 100% of your electricity use, based on your roof size, the amount of sun hitting the roof, and your monthly electricity bill. Project Sunroof takes advantage of up-to-date solar industry pricing data to determine costs for leasing solar panels, taking out a solar power installation loan, or buying solar panels for your home. Incentives such as federal and state tax credits, local utility rebates, and renewable energy credits are compiled to calculate your final cost. Then, you can select the best option for your green energy needs.
