Google has launched a new service called Project Sunroof that will map how much solar power a building's roof could generate with the addition of solar panels. Sunroof uses Google Maps data including 3D modelling to figure out how much roof a building has available for panels, and takes into consideration average climate conditions in the area as well as nearby objects that cast shade. It will also estimate how much you could save on electricity costs, to help you decide if the investment will be worth it. -Lara Killian
