Calculate Solar and Wind Energy Available In Your Backyard

 Please note- I wanted to send a quick shout out to Covertress for first posting this information.


The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has a phenomenal online tool called, In my backyard. This tool will help you estimate how much energy you can produce from either solar or wind resources. The first thing you do is enter your address and a Google earth type map comes up showing a satellite image of your house. You then use the drawing tool to draw the solar arrays or wind mills on to the map and the tool will estimate energy production for your anticipated additions.
