    New York Needs Rooftop Solar

    How New York City Is Turning Its Thousands of Roofs Into Power Providers; Manhattan now has the country’s biggest array of solar panels on an apartment complex. The Bronx could soon have a bigger one

    Patrick McGeehan, July 10, 2019 (NY Times)

    “New York City is home to thousands of acres of rooftop, some of the most expensive electricity in the country and progressive leadership that has embraced efforts to combat climate change…[but it] has been slower than other big cities in tapping into one constant source of clean energy: the sun…[Now both state and city leaders are] making sweeping promises about swearing off using fossil fuels…[and] some of the biggest expanses of flat roof in New York are being turned into sources of cheap and green electricity…This year, the corporate owner of Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village in Manhattan completed the installation of the country’s largest array of solar panels on an apartment complex. And soon, the Bronx could have an even larger one, at the massive Co-Op City complex…

    These broad-scale, privately funded projects could help New York catch up with big cities like Los Angeles and San Diego, which are national leaders in the solar power movement…[Building owners are taking advantage of incentives offered in support of the state’s goal for] 70 percent of its power to be generated from renewable sources by 2030…[and New York City’s ordinance requiring] most new buildings to be topped with solar panels or roofs covered in grass or other vegetation…” click here for more
