Solar Boston is an interactive map designed to provide information about energy usage in Boston and to encourage the widespread adoption of solar energy. It displays the locations of four kinds of alternative energy installations - solar, biomass, hydroelectric, and wind - as well as overlays showing solar radiation levels by rooftop as well as potentially restricted areas. It also provides a "find your address" tool and the ability to calculate the solar potential of individual buildings or user-specified sections of the map.
