OKI Interactive Solar Map

Is Your Home Suited for Solar?

The OKI Regional Council of Governments has launched an online interactive Solar Map to help homeowners determine if their home is a good fit for solar. Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative, the Solar Map provides information about the solar potential of buildings in the Greater Cincinnati region.

After searching a specific address, the map can tell you:

  • if a roof is “good for solar” or “too shaded for solar”
  • the percentage of usable roof area
  • the size of the potential system
  • the potential number of kW per year that the system would produce
  • an annual utility savings estimate
  • the optimal areas of the roof for the panels

OKI would like you to keep in mind that this isn’t a perfect resource. The information produced by the tool is based on survey data and can’t substitute for a professional evaluation, but it is a great place to start.
