Instructions

Solar Energy

To switch to solar energy page, you can click on the solar panel image on the bottom-left corner of the main page or click on solar energy button at the top of the pages. The map on the web upper-left corner provides a tool for you to estimate solar energy for any location in the world. You can either roam to a location, type in a location name, or type in an address, and then use the zooming and drawing buttons to draw an area on the map. You can change the value for efficiency factor (default value is 0.2). The values in the Energy, Annual Electricity, and Area grids are the outputs for your selection.

Wind Energy

To switch to wind energy page, you can click on the rotor image on the bottom-right corner of the main page or click on wind energy button at the top of the pages. You can choose your efficiency factor (default value is 0.2), a rotor diameter (default value is 20 meters), number of turbines (default value is 1), and the tower height (default value is 10 meter). If you choose 0 as the number of turbine, this website will internally determine the number of the turbines based on the area you select. The map on the web upper-left corner provides a tool for you to estimate wind energy for any location in the world. You can either roam to a location, type in a location name, or type in an address, and then use the zooming and drawing buttons to draw an area on the map. The values in Power Density, Annual Electricity, and Area grids are the outputs for your selection.
