Finding Solar Farms Using Satellite Images

SolarEnergyMaps.com has been crowdsourcing solar roofs, solar parking and solar farms for several years.  We do this manually by zooming down to appropriate levels to view images.  Solar farms, solar roofs and solar parking structures are easy to find as long as satellite images are updated.  We ask our users to put a yellow pin in our map and submit a link to a news article about the solar location.
