Solar Power Could Energize Half of NYC

Yesterday, the City University of New York's graduate center in Manhattan hosted a "Solar Summit" where researchers and programmers announced the launch of the NYC Solar Map. The CUNY website describes the solar map as "an interactive online tool that will allow users to estimate solar energy potential for any building in the City." The map will also calculate the cost of installing solar panels and how long it will take for the panels to pay for themselves. The map has allowed analysts to calculate that nearly two-thirds of NYC's rooftops could host solar panels and that solar power could provide for half of the city's energy needs. [MSNBC]
