I think this would be a fun student project. I would certainly have enjoyed it.
Here’s a year’s worth of my solar-generation data. My roof is oriented approximately 5 degrees west of south.
- How close can you get to discovering where I live, from this data alone?
- How can you improve your estimate by incorporating other publicly-available data sources?
- What further information about the installation would help you improve your estimate?
Feel free to make suggestions in the comments about fun additions.
