These are the U.S. cities with the most solar potential

Just type in the zip code and Project Sunlight will load a map that shows you where the buildings in your neighborhood lie on a scale from shady to sunny (in my Brooklyn neighborhood, 80% of buildings were solar viable). Across the country, Houston has the most solar potential of any U.S. city in its database—with an estimated 18,940 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of rooftop solar generation potential per year, according to a Google blog post.
