Project Sunroof

1) Sustainability Problem: Energy

Many people are interested in using solar power as a renewable energy source and to achieve cost savings, but making the transition can be difficult and most people don’t know where to start.

2) Technology: Google’s Project Sunroof to help identify solar power opportunities

  • Google’s Project Sunroof aims to catalyze the transition to solar power
  • Using the existing information provided by GoogleMaps, Google can determine if residential homes are suitable for solar power, how much energy a rooftop could generate, and how much could be saved on electrical bills
  • Project Sunroof assists users with finding solar providers in their area
  • By April 2016, Google expanded to 42 states, granting easy access to solar information and quotes to roughly 43 million rooftops!
  • Serves as a lead generator for solar companies

3) Stakeholders:

  • Google
  • Solar users and potential solar users
  • Solar power companies
  • Energy companies

4) Implementation:

  • Make available in all 50 states
  • Partner with any and all reputable solar energy companies
  • Generate awareness among potential customers



One thought on “Project Sunroof

  1. Great idea, I am definitely going to check this out to see if the house I live in has good potential for a solar roof. I have been a little skeptical since solar roofs became available. I want to be sure that I am going to have an advantage using solar and not be a dissatisfied investor.
