In an effort to increase solar awareness and promote sustainable and renewable energy, Google launched Project Sunroof last August to San Francisco, Fresno, and Boston. The project, which uses Google Earth, allows users to find out if their homes were suitable for solar panels.
Since its launch, Project Sunroof has expanded to tens of millions of potential customers – 42 states have been reached by the project, and it can analyze up to 43 million rooftops. According to Google, customers are visiting the Project Sunroof website each month by the thousands.
As the price of installing sunroofs has gotten significantly less expensive, more and more homeowners are considering it as a viable option to save money on energy costs. Google introduced Project Sunroof as a way to make solar panel and solar energy easy to understand.
