Project Sunroof: Google Maps will now advice if you should install solar panels on your roof

Have you ever thought with the amount of electricity we are using daily with this increasing population, where might our electricity lead us to or in our near future or will it be able to reach to everyone’s need of consumption of electricity? This is indeed a serious issue of our World. Google Maps has found out a potential solution for this ever-growing menace with its new Project Sunroof.

In the year of 2011, the International Agency once said that “the development of affordable, inexhaustible and clean solar energy technologies will have huge longer-term benefits. It will increase countries energy security through reliance on indigenous, inexhaustible and most import-independent resource, enhance sustainability, reduce pollution, lower the costs of mitigating global warming and keep fossil fuel prices lower than otherwise. These advantages are global. Hence the additional costs of the incentives for early deployment should be considered learning investments; they must be wisely spent and need to be widely shared.” Now it’s clear that it is not only affecting us financially but also affecting the World.
Now we have this huge amount of solar energy which produces trillions of watts per second. Now won’t it be wise enough to use this energy instead of paying these unnecessary huge electrical bills?

But yes starting of something is difficult. You might have questions like how many panels will you require? How much you can save and how do you know that your house even gets enough Sun? How it can benefit you personally or how much it may cost.
To answer all your confused mind our engineers researched and finally found a way to to discover something which will answer all of your questions just in one place. Google has finally found a way to utilize the power of the Sun and this idea is called Project Sunroof. The Project Sunroof reads the given data from Google maps and helps people to give informations like if they are good applicant for solar panels and the most suitable places for installing them. Now you might worry that who will install them. But you need not worry because Sunroof also comes with the function of letting us know the total amount of sunlight you will get in a year and also the total space accessible for the panel. Although installing sunroof can be costly for about 20,000, but if you compare it with your yearly expenses on electricity bills then you are bound to see the huge difference of money this solar energy is making.
The Project Sunroof service is only now available only in three places like Boston where the sunroof team is found; the San Francisco where Google is found and in Fresno, California where there is sunny environment. It is soon going to spread globally with it’s such good useful applications.
