City of Boston: Mayor's Office of Energy and Envir
The ultimate goal of our project was to determine if solar power implementation was feasible in the city of Boston. We used a combination of GIS mapping databases as well as a procedure of roof analysis that had already been established by the City to search for future sites for solar installation. We were sponsored by the City of Boston, which has the funding and capabilities to implement solar power. We researched, analyzed, and presented our discoveries regarding efficiency and placement of equipment to help guide the new Solar Boston program in its effort to promote sustainable development in the great City of Boston. Based on our analysis, we determined that solar panels are a viable option for the City.
