3 GW of potential #solar capacity on San Francisco roofs

This is a particularly high capacity for San Francisco, as the city covers only 47 square miles with a mere 850,000 inhabitants, one-tenth the population of New York. One factor may be that the city is less dense, however Mapdwell was not available to comment on their findings by press time. Neither San Francisco nor New York City offer the kinds of high capacity factors that PV plants in the Southwest, Texas and other regions offer. Based on Mapdwell's numbers San Francsico's 2.99 GW could generate 3.99 GWh annually, at an average capacity factor of 15%. Solar is slightly less productive in New York, with 11.4 GW of capacity offering a potential of 13.3 GWh, for an average 13% capacity factor, or roughly half that of a typical utility-scale project in the desert Southwest. Mapdwell's maps of major cities provide property owners with individual assessment of their building...
