Sebastopol CA The new online Roof Azimuth Tool from Solmetric simplifies solar site assessment using aerial pictures and Google Maps™ to measure roof azimuth from any computer connected to the Internet. Users locate the roof by entering an address, and then determine azimuth by drawing a compass onto the roof.
Roof orientation are important for determining solar energy production. But getting accurate measurements on-site can be tricky: getting exact alignment is difficult, results may need to be corrected by magnetic declination, and nearby metal can distort readings. Sometimes the people who go onsite don’t have the time or the skill to measure accurately.
The new online Roof Azimuth Tool from Solmetric simplifies this process using aerial pictures and Google Maps™ to measure roof azimuth from any computer connected to the Internet. Users simply enter in the address, locate the roof, and draw the compass onto the roof.
In addition to measuring the azimuth, you can save and share your roof project with others via a convenient email exchange. Collaborate and save time with your solar projects.
The Roof Azimuth Tool is free of charge. Please see www.solmetric.com/support-info.html for more information.
