Google’s Project Sunroof Shines a Light on Texas Solar

The sun shines bright in the Lone Star State, and Google’s Project Sunroof demonstrates the power of Texas solar irradiation. In a recent blogpost, Google reported that three Texas cities are among the top 10 in the United States for rooftop solar potential. Houston ranked #1 as the city with the highest solar potential, San Antonio and Dallas hold the #4 and #9 spots, respectively.

Project Sunroof is a free program developed by Google that was launched in 2015 in California in order to help consumers make informed decisions about adopting solar. Since then, Google has expanded coverage to serve additional areas in the United States. Most recently, areas of Texas were added to Project Sunroof’s coverage area. The program uses imagery from Google Maps, Google Earth and additional modeling software to estimate how much sunlight individual rooftops receive and how much solar power the rooftop is capable of generating.

Future of Texas Solar

At Mission Solar Energy, we see a bright future for Texas solar. The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) agrees, projecting that Texas will move from 9th to 2nd place in solar generation over the next five years. Texas cities such as Austin, San Antonio and Georgetown are leading the way with large-scale commitments to solar generation in their communities. San Antonio recently announced that they have extended their popular solar rebate program which now includes additional rebates on array components manufactured in San Antonio.
