Solar Surfing the Web!

24 Nov : The SunnyPortal website can be very revealing, if not fascinating. It leads me to think that it could lead to a dissertation topic in itself - by revealing 22 thousand sites all over the world, there are a wonderful range of systems all reporting themselves to the web - not just domestic roofs like ours, but others more revealing or experiemental.

There are combination ones (so you can compare wind and solar on the same site with the graphs combined). There are some experimental structures (eg solar panels on trees of metal tubing, motorised structures, or ones that build mirrors alongside the panels.) A student with enough patience could identify many interesting installations, and then follow up by contacting the owners for more detail in the case study.
