New Solar Energy Tools

February 6, 2011 at 10:20 pm Leave a comment

Tonight I found a very interesting and exciting web page to share.  It is from the folks at the University of California at San Diego and it gives us all several new tools to help figure out the optimal design for the solar system you are putting on your roof.  You are planning to do that aren’t you?

They harness another of my favorite tools, Google Earth via a KMZ file which produces interactive overlays to the basic mapping data.  The tools provide data on the solar energy density for your area, the optimal alignment and tilt for your panels and there is also shadow mapping that will allow future versions to calculate solar irradiance forecasts for specific areas.  All this can be found at:

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, Stumble Upon or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
