Title: Interactive Solar Roofs register

The digital cadastre of the solar roof Geoplex GmbH enables the general public and interested investors, the Internet-based query of the solar power potential on the roofs of a large space (eg a parish or town). These algorithms have been developed to examine all sides of the roof space in relation to the specifications of a commercial solar electricity production on exposure, slope, shadowing effects and assign them to a minimum size and overall fitness category. In the final, web-based map, users can query the solar potential individually and as Kosten-/Nutzenrechnungen suitable for roofs with lead. Thus supports the solar roof land the investment decision of interested home owners as well as the ecologically and economically sensible expansion of climate-friendly renewable energy.
