The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has unveiled on its Web site a new map designed to show the suitability of various renewable energy installations, such as solar systems, at specific locations in the U.S.
‘You can find your county on the appropriate map, select the different map layers to see current renewable energy sites and resource potential, and then read about the latest technologies to see which mix of energy opportunities might work for you and your community,’ explains Nathanael Greene, director of renewable energy policy at NRDC, in the NRDC blog.
Florida, Ohio, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Tennessee are presented with extended details on the map. NRDC says these states represent ‘key battlegrounds’ in the energy debate and plans to include additional details for more states in the future.
