New York City

An amazing new alternative energy tool has been released to the public in the form of the New York City Solar Map – a map that shows anyone the potential solar project that can be implemented on their roof, whether it be commercial or residential.

 

Calculating solar energy in NYC

The map allows anyone to tag existing solar projects throughout the city, and get a bird’s eye view of how many solar panels are generating energy in the five Burroughs. This feature alone would make the map a cool feature to check out. But the NYC Solar Map has taken it a step further, and clearly shows the amount of solar potential any rooftop has, and it calculates/estimates:

  • Your annual electricity bill savings
  • How many kW you can generate
  • Your expected reduction of CO2emissions
  • The environmental equivalent in tree plantings

 

NYC Celebrities should be solar powered
