The MyHEAT solar potential platform provides an easy way for municipalities and utilities to engage and educate residents on the costs and savings for rooftop solar installation.

MyHEAT Solar is a web-based tool designed to deliver quick and accurate solar potential data for individual buildings.The base solar potential data is provided by Google’s Project Sunroof through a web-based API. The Google service is highly scalable and is designed for worldwide consumption. The technology uses a byproduct of Google 3D mapping, combined with solar potential data, and local values to provide a personal savings indicator. Residents can find their home or building on a map, visualize the solar potential, and customize a potential solar install based on their electricity consumption. Once a user views their rooftop solar potential, the platform provides the "Easy Button" for residents to participate in any solar programs available locally.
