|One of the most famous cities in the world, New York City is a thriving center for business, entertainment, arts, technology, you name it. As one of the most populated areas in the world, the “city that never sleeps” is always in demand of energy sources to power its numerous businesses, offices, and homes, so it comes as no surprise that the city has already begun to take measures to shift to solar power.|
|In this first-of-its-kind application, low-cost, thin-film photovoltaic (solar electric or “PV”) panels (210kW) were combined with clear glass in custom glazing units to provide the right balance among shelter, daylighting, and electricity generation at Coney Island’s Stillwell Avenue Terminal.||This 40kW, building-integrated photovoltaic array at New York City’s Whitehall Ferry Terminal generates electricity and allows sunlight to stream through the canopy panels, providing daylight to interior areas.||The Habana Outpost “eco-eatery” in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn serves as both a restaurant and community gathering space where art, environment, and community take center stage.|
