To find potential solar panel clients
Not a bad idea that. How often is it updated?
My lad gave me the idea as I'm using his laptop and noticed it hadn't got Google earth downloaded. I told him I was downloading it and he said our latest car was now on the drive (he'd seen it via Google maps street view).
Then the penny dropped with me. Saves driving around. Not sure how often it's updated. If it was 3 years ago most won't be on there sadly, but it's an idea though.
Oh and I aint found any that I don't know of yet. :angry:
We use google earth a lot for solar enquiries. The panels do not always show on the roof, but it gives you a good idea of what type of roof you are dealing with and the lie of the land. Not a bad idea mate, but tends to be a little out of date at the moment. It will come good though.
Have they improved the quality then? I never found it that good.
I use this for quoting. If someone rings, I ask them if they have a con or an extension around the back. Once I have the info from them, I have a look at there property on street view, and give them a quote between x and x. Works a treat.
google mape where we are, are 2 years out of date.
Bing maps are 6 years out of date on the close up view, but under 2 year on the aerial view.
Exactly what I do as well, I'd say 99% accurate quotes.
Ive tried this but it never works in my favour lol
Theres to many variables for me to give an accurate quote
