The Solar Energy Environmental Mapper is a web-based application that displays environmental data for the southwest U.S. in the context of utility-scale solar energy development.
It provides access to screening-level data about resources and constraints, with analysis tools to help improve siting decisions.
Explore maps of solar resource availability and environmental data. Zoom to pre-defined bookmarks or create your own. Print a copy of your map.
Retrieve detailed information for features on the map. Search for locations of interest by place name, address, Public Land Survey System, or by lat/long.
Retrieve a report based on a custom area. Measure distances and areas on the map.
