GovHack 2019 Project Entry - Project NRG (New Renewable Green)

For the 2019 GovHack (Australian national government open data hackathon) I joined a team and was the main coder. Out project was about using your home address to calculate the savings or earnings you would make by installing a solar panel. It uses building footprint data to calculate the approximate roof size and then how many solar panels you could fit on your roof.

It was made with Python and Flask as a backend, bootstrap and jQuery as a frontend. It polls a PostGIS database for building footprint data.

We won several awards, including:
