Solar: The Open PV Project

An e-mail from Vote Solar announcing the project and site:

Ok, you’re right, sunshine is always free. But good solar data sure isn’t! That’s why we’re so excited about the Open PV project from our National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Open PV is a free database of real American solar project info sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. It has data on over 160,000 solar systems across the country – where they are, how big they are, how much they cost, and more. It’s all illustrated in a snazzy Visualization Gallery with handy charts and graphs. From projects in your zip code to an overview of national market trends, Open PV holds the answer to so many solar questions.

Do you have a solar system or access to data on solar systems in your area? Add your own info and help NREL build this free national solar information center.
