The quantity of rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) installations has grown rapidly in the US in recent years. There is a strong interest among decision makers in obtaining high quality information about rooftop PV, such as the locations, power capacity, and energy production of existing rooftop PV installations. Solar PV installations are typically connected(More)
Earth-observing remote sensing data, including aerial photography and satellite imagery, offer a snapshot of the world from which we can learn about the state of natural resources and the built environment. The components of energy systems that are visible from above can be automatically assessed with these remote sensing data when processed with machine(More)
The quantity of small scale solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays in the United States has grown rapidly in recent years. As a result, there is substantial interest in high quality information about the quantity, power capacity, and energy generated by such arrays, including at a high spatial resolution (e.g., counties, cities, or even smaller regions).(More)
The amount of solar panels is increasing rapidly. Current solar power capacity estimation relies on solar panel owners reporting capacity, which is a slow process. This report presents a method to predict the power capacity of solar panels using the area from two dimensional satellite images. The goal is to show the correlation between these two variables(More)
Power generation from distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays has grown rapidly in recent years. As a result, there is interest in collecting information about the quantity, power capacity, and energy generated by such arrays; and to do so over small geo-spatial regions (e.g., counties, cities, or even smaller regions). Unfortunately, existing sources of(More)
