Data Dictionary: Building & Solar Metrics ๐ŸŒž

Building Details

  • Roof Area: An essential data point that calculates the total roof area in square feet, taking into account the tilt of the roof. This figure is particularly useful for understanding the availability of space for solar panel installations or other rooftop amenities. ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ (Note: This metric is in beta; allow for up to a 20% margin of error based on imagery quality.)
  • Ground Area: Representing the footprint area of the building in square feet, this metric is crucial for land-use planning and property evaluation. ๐ŸŒ†
  • Roofing Squares: Tailored for the roofing industry, this metric converts the roof area into "roofing squares," a standard unit used for estimating roofing materials. ๐Ÿ—๏ธ

Solar Metrics

  • Sunshine Hours/Year: A luminous metric that quantifies the annual sunshine hours any point on the roof receives. It serves as an indispensable guide for gauging the solar potential of your edifice. ๐ŸŒž
  • Max Panels Count: This data point shines by indicating the maximum number of solar panels your roof can host, facilitating your journey toward sustainable energy. โ˜€๏ธ
  • Potential Energy Savings/Year: Here's where the rubber meets the roadโ€”or rather, where the sun meets the panel. This metric estimates the annual energy savings achievable with a full solar panel installation. ๐ŸŒ

Panel Layout

  • Panel Capacity: The electrical capacity of a single panel measured in watts. This information powers your understanding of potential energy output. โšก
  • Panel Height & Panel Width: These dimensions in meters are your blueprint for solar installation planning. They ensure your panel layout is both efficient and compliant with any structural constraints. ๐Ÿ“



Coming Soon: More Solar Metrics ๐Ÿ“ˆ

  • Solar Potential and Configuration: Expect details like Panel Lifetime Years, Max Array Area, and Carbon Offset Factor. Each offers insights into the sustainability and efficiency of your solar adventure.
  • Financial Analyses: Get savvy with your solar investment through comprehensive financial metrics, including Leasing and Purchase Savings. ๐Ÿ’ฐ
  • Additional Metrics: Stay tuned for nuanced data like Pitch Degrees, Azimuth Degrees, and Yearly Energy Production. These will help fine-tune your solar strategy to perfection. ๐Ÿ“Š

Capabilities: What Can You Do? ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ

  • Simple Measuring: Click "Start Measuring," plot your points on the map, and calculate areas or perimeters with ease. To measure an area, connect the last map point to the first map point to see total perimeter and total square footage or square miles of the area. ๐ŸŒณ
  • Map Types and Street View: Toggle between 'Map' and 'Satellite' views or drag the human icon for a Google Street View experience. Your mood, your choice. ๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ

Ready, Set, Go! ๐Ÿš€

You're now armed with knowledge and a suite of tools that make you a neighborhood explorer and a potential solar energy revolutionary. Time to win the day! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿš€
