A look at Project Sunroof by Google

Home Owners can now easily gauge the amount of solar need on their home using Project Sunroof.

How it works:Sunroof

Home Owners can enter their address on the Project Sunroof Website. Google will then display the amount of solar exposure and unshaded roof space for solar panels. Scrolling down will provide a Solar System Size Calculator and financing information.

What it means for the Home Owner:

Home Owners can now receive instant feedback on solar for their home. Project Sunroof is extremely easy to use and fairly accurate compared to our own standards. After receiving information from Project Sunroof, Home Owners will now have a better idea of what to ask for when consulting with Solar Power Installation Companies.

What it means for HE Solar LLC:

We are excited that one of the most widely used websites in the world will be exposing its Customers to solar. Google is a very trustworthy company that Consumers can use as the first step when investing in solar. It should be noted that Home Owners can receive the most accurate information by requesting a quote from HE Solar LLC. We provide free estimates and we currently use Google Maps to analyze solar exposure, shade issues, and approximate system sizes.

Google’s role:

Google will hopefully connect interested consumers to local Solar Installation Companies. Less reputable solar leads companies already exist and it will be nice to see if Project Sunroof can provide clarity for home owners. HE Solar LLC will sign up to be a listed solar provider when the option becomes available in Texas.
