    “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…
