This page details how industry participants can notify Wiki-Solar about a number of projects.
To tell us about a single new plant, which we don't show, go here. To update or correct projects that are shown, go here
Providing data for multiple plants
Many major industry participants provide data about their project portfolio to Wiki-Solar. To assist in collating this data, we have designed the template below. This can be downloaded from this page or here.
Please complete as many of the details as you can, and at least those in the green-headed columns.
You can get latitude and longitude from Google Maps and similar programmes. Simply zoom in on the appropriate area, place the cursor over the centre of the project site and right click. Select 'what's here' and Google Maps will display the latitude and longitude, perhaps up to 6 decimal places - we only need 3 or 4.
Please show latitudes in the Southern hemisphere and longitudes to the West as negative.
Capacity, dates and figures
These need to be entered as purely numerical answers based on the units shown. Dates are in mmm-yyyy format.
If in doubt about what each participant does, see further definitions here.
Leading utility-scale solar companies
The pages in this section of the website show the few dozen leading players in the global utility-scale solar sector. For those entities (and a few more, which are close to entering the list) Wiki-Solar can prepare a spreadsheet in the form shown here, pre-loaded with the projects we know about. If you want to know if we have this list for your company, please email us.
It may take a week or two for your new plant to appear on our maps after validation.
Many thanks for helping keep this data as accurate as possible. If you are a participant in the project, it will also help you achieve your rightful place in the company rankings.
