The sun has produced energy for billions of years. It is the most important source of energy for life forms. It is a renewable source of energy unlike non- renewable sources such as fossil fuels.
Solar energy technologies use the sun’s energy to light homes, produce hot water, heat homes and electricity.
The main benefit of solar energy is that it does not produce any pollutants and is one of the cleanest source of energy. It is a renewable source of energy, requires low maintenance and are easy to install. The only limitation that solar energy possess is that it cannot be used at night and
The only limitation that solar energy possess is that it cannot be used at night and amount of sunlight that is received on earth is depends on location, time of day, time of year, and weather conditions.
With the installation of solar panels, homeowner’s everywhere will be given the chance to lower their energy bill with a program called Project Sunroof by Google.
We think that’s pretty awesome.
Installing solar panels has gotten a lot cheaper than before, making this accessible to many individuals!
When you 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.
You also do not have to worry about Project Sunroof giving your private information to anyone!
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 also 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.
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.
They recommend an installation that covers less than 100% of your electrical usage because, in most areas, there is little financial benefit to producing more power than you can consume.
This is a great opportunity for homeowner’s to save money, as well as do good for their community and the environment.
