Lasers Create Interactive Solar Map For New York
The New York City Solar Map, created by the City University of New York (CUNY), shows that NYC has enough solar capacity on its roofs to power half of the city during periods of peak demand. After San Francisco launched its solar map, the number of solar installations on private roofs there more than quadrupled in four years, so maybe this will be the start of some serious solar power generation for The Big Apple. Thanks to @wil_bielert for heating things up a bit with this find.
