Google your house to see if you should go solar

Googlet wants to map the amount of sunlight your rooftop receives — and help you decide if it makes financial sense to go solar.

Dubbed Project Sunroof, the recently released online tool enables you to type in your address and find out how much space you have for solar panels on your roof, how many hours of rooftop sunlight you’ll get a year, and how much money you’d save.

The pilot tool is so far only available for residents of the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, and Fresno, California, but Google plans to expand the tool to other areas of the United States.
