Project Sunroof (google.com/sunroof) is a free, public tool for estimating the amount of renewable electricity that a home — or an entire city — could generate with solar panels. Project Sunroof uses machine learning to find feasible locations for solar panels on a roof. Then, the tool estimates electrical generation using historical weather, shadows from trees and obstacles, and locally applicable tax incentives.

The online data explorer provides solar overviews for many cities in the U.S., and the homeowner tool allows individual residents to look up expected savings or costs for their address.

Software developer, May 2015 to present.
