I Heart PV by Solar One
Solar Electric Energy (aka Photovotaics, or just PV) could provide an enormous share of NYC's electricity supply in the future. While currently more expensive than conventional generating technologies, a number of policies and incentives can be implemented to make solar more affordable in NYC. I Heart PV is a new campaign (to be launched at Citysol!) that will focus its local efforts on gaining State level support for effective policies that will make PV more viable in NYC in the near future by removing unnecessary barriers and creating special incentives for in-city projects.
