Solar Power Prospector
The Solar Power Prospector is an interactive mapping tool to help developers site large-scale solar plants by providing easy access to solar resource datasets and other data relevant to utility-scale solar power projects.
The Prospector provides easy access to solar resource, land ownership, environmental, administrative and infrastructural data to help assess solar development potential within the United States.
Users can examine, distribute and analyze decisions about optimal locations for CSP plants. The tool facilitates exploration of temporal and spatial aspects of NREL’s solar resource data and can download the resource data for use outside of the tool.
