Toward a Solar Powered NYC, This Weekend on Gov. Island


When people talk about productive urban solar power installations, I tend to think of the sun drenched cities of the South: Phoenix, Albuquerque or even Miami.  Their cool and cloudy cousins further north seem to be unlikely candidates for major solar energy infrastructure (especially with summers like the one we’re experiencing in New York!). However, according to the good folks at Solar One–a green energy, arts, and education center located right on the East River at 30th St–NYC is uniquely situated to utilize and benefit from solar power.

Come out to Governors Island this weekend to hear why New York needs solar energy and how we can effectively fight for it by building a grassroots initiative. Also, check out the description (at the above link) of next saturday’s presentation on Gardening in the City.
