New York City Area Doubled Its Solar Power Capacity in 2010

Private solar power installations at homes and businesses more than doubled last year in New York City and Westchester County.  In 2009, 134 PV systems were installed in that area and solar power capacity was 4 MW.  Last year, there were 203 PV installations, bringing the capacity up to 8.5 MW.

Westchester County installations actually fell slightly from 2009, but the New York City boroughs ramped up their solar.  Queens actually quadrupled its installations from 16 in 2009 to 64 in 2010, adding over 1,538 kW of capacity.

Utility company Con Edison is taking the credit for the solar boom saying they promoted the cheap 20 mg levitra economic and environmental benefits of solar power systems and also streamlined the approval process for residential systems under 25 kW.

The number of buy tramadol without small-scale solar installations has grown more rapidly than larger solar projects recently, mainly due to the economic downturn and the high price of larger installations, but also because the approval process for large projects can be a nightmare for developers.  While small, distributed installations won't solve the climate crisis on their own, they are an essential part of the solution.

Across the indian levitra river in the NJ Meadowlands Solar generation has gone from about 0MG to over 13MB since 2008.

An insignificant amount of generation

This is not really newsworthy. The amount of power generated is quite trivial. Sounds like ecogeek has fallen victim to a press release ... again.
NY Gets It! Whats Wrong With The Sunshine State??

West Palm Beach, FL: in 2007, after a donation and order viagra usa generous proposal initiated by GoSunSolutions to compliment the City's $170M spending spree on their new City Center, the 1.75MW rooftop PV system was denied. Although the cost was shaved from $1.2M to $400,000, the Chinese manufacturer, 'Solarfun' (NASDQ: SOLF) made a trip from China and was turned down by the solar task force comprised of several FPL representatives and the husband of a City commissioner named Geri Muio. Ms. Muio has since decided to run for mayor.

The 52 page document drafted by the group stated that cloud cover made solar energy ineffective in South Florida. This coming from FPL who has launched 5 major solar projects in 2010 alone displays a hypocrisy that has burdened alternative energy solutions for 50 years. Then again, NYC seems to where can you buy viagra cheap be a logical choice over the "Sunshine State"

While I agree it is hard to get meaningful number from anyone in the power industry, and that goes for wind, water, solar, coal, gas, or nuke. There are some basic truths:

doubling per year maintain over even a short period of time does have a impact. 4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024

Next time you are in a plane, before you get to high look down. A LOT of flat roofs, or pitch roofs faces south down there.

Local power generation does not suffer from transmission loss or failures. When power is generated 100s of miles away you lose a lot going from point A to point B. Last I looked, I didn't see any town fighting to get a large new coal or nuke plant in their back yard. When A Texas power company sells to California that a long trip.

I'm with Matt on this one. We have to start somewhere and doubling your solar polar capacity in one year is a huge leap in the right direction. That's not to say they shouldn't continue the momentum, but kudos to NYC for improving their sustainable energy efforts.
