The SolarPlots API provides a new data tool to track where the sun will be in any given location in the US (and adjacent parts of Mexico and Canada) for any specific date and time or series of dates. The sun plotting search tool could possibly be used by photographers needing to know best times to shoot twilight scenes, for sun-bathers wanting to book the best time on a hotel rooftop, or home buyers wanting to calculate how much direct sunlight their new property may get. Developers could use the app to scale up such individual needs or to add sun-loving contextual information to a location-based app product.
The PVOutput API allows solar panel owners to plug their data into the PVOutput website so that they and others can track and compare their results. The data also get compiled into regional and international rankings, as the donut graph illustrates below.
Clean Power Estimator is an online interactive tool that gives users a quick, high-level preview of the benefits they can achieve by installing a PV or solar thermal system. Businesses in this field can use this tool to sell the benefits of solar power to their website visitors, encouraging them to make contact and learn more. The Clean Power Estimator API makes this possible as it is available to be integrated into third party software applications.
