Google always in constant development of new technological tools, now hopefully the project to be extended to other countries.
The technology giant to seize your potential Google Maps to encourage the use of renewable energy. How? Measuring the amount of solar energy that can reach ceilings and consequently the photovoltaic panels that can be installed, taking as reference the weather, the angle of the roofs and obstacles that may generate shade as trees or chimneys.
This service is already available in small urban areas of the United States, as in the Bay of San Francisco, Fresno and Boston, but the idea is to extend it to more regions, Google says. In addition, the tool also has the potential to be a means of contact with end-users installers.
According to The Next Web, Sunroof Project also seeks to win over people who are not interested in solar energy, showing how much money you could save by installing the solar panels without the need to hire an expert to perform measurements and quotes.
With this Google project also aims to reduce its carbon emissions, in addition to helping fund the largest solar park in Africa.
