Solar Farms Map: Find Solar Farms Nearby
Often, it is necessary to analyze the main characteristics of existing solar farms in order to make better decisions in the implementation of future solar farms. Learning from the main deficiencies of the solar farms in operation can be very useful for a better implementation and exploitation of future solar projects, under similar environmental conditions. Thus, a search for nearby solar farms should be the first step in this long study process. This post will present a tool that allows you to find solar farms anywhere in the world. The tool allows you to explore solar farms in any country using a world map, in addition it allow filtering solar farms by panels area and installed capacity. Another important feature is that it shows the solar farms closest to the user's location. The tool can be found by clicking on the following link. Once inside, the first step should be to select the country that you want to explore its solar farms, or determine it by your location. Then in the filter section located on the map (Fig. 1) you have to click on "Filter" and then activate "Solar farms" to only show the solar farms in the selected country (Fig. 1).
Then clicking on the "Filter" button shows only the solar farms in the selected country. Furthermore, the tool allows filtering by installed capacity and by panels area by clicking on their respective fields. In Fig. 2, we can see how to filter to obtain solar farms with more than 20 MW of installed capacity and that have from 50 to 60 ha of panels area, which are shown later on the map. Also, by clicking on any marker you can see the details of the solar farm in question, and if you click on "Search address", Google Maps is automatically opened with the location and address of the solar farm, and from the satellite view you can see also the configuration of the solar farm sought.
This tool allows you to easily find the solar farms closest to your location. Simply in the "Near me" section these appear (Fig. 3), and you only have to filter by "Solar Farm Locations" so that it only shows the closest solar farms to you, ordered by the distance to your location. From the "Search address" button, Google Maps is automatically opened with the location of the solar farm in question, from which you can find the address, routes, etc. in case you decide to visit it.
- Find solar farms in any country
- Show in a world map solar farms fitered by installed capacity and/or panels area
- Find solar farms nearby
These features make it a very useful tool for the initial phase of a solar farm project. Thank you very much for the attention and until next time.
