Council has launched a free online 'Solar Mapping Tool' to help residents and businesses to estimate the potential for solar electricity generation on their roof.
The 'Solar Mapping Tool' provides an estimate on annual electricity generation, financial savings and emissions offset by installing solar panels. This information will help energy consumers make better decisions about investments in Solar PV. With electricity prices on the rise the tool provides residents with information that will assist with solar system purchasing decisions
You can map the solar potential of your home or business by visiting the SunSpot Solar Potential Map, entering your address and drawing the 'map' of your potential solar installation area. The data provided will equip you with information to make an informed decision on solar installation.
Before visiting the site, note the following steps to help you map your roof:
- Visit the SunSpot page: http://pv-map.apvi.org.au/sunspot
- Choose Sydney and click on the search icon next to "search for a specific address"
- Enter the address and then use the polygon or rectangle tool to map out the rooftop area.
- The calculated information will then appear on the right.
You can also view live information on state and nationwide solar data
