Quickly Assess Your Rooftop Solar Potential on MDI
College of the Atlantic - Wade Lyman's Project - data is from 2010 so new homes not included
Google Sunroof - only covers 85% of Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor & Mount Desert so far
This web application was created by College of the Atlantic student, Wade Lyman in 2010 using ESRI software at the COA GIS Laboratory. The data in the map were attained using simulations of annual solar incidence, including the effects of intermittent shading from adjacent topography, structures and trees throughout the year. This allowed for relatively precise, high resolution estimations of solar technology performance on every roof.
