To help New York meet energy needs and foster solar development technologies, Gov. David Paterson on Friday shared plans for a 100-megawatt photovoltaic project, geared toward helping implement his clean-energy agenda.
The project would become the largest like it in the state and include roof and ground-mounted solar arrays at multiple locations throughout New York. These projects, combined with a 50 megawatt solar voltaic project led by Long Island Power Authority, would total 150 megawatts of power. The governor also envisions the creation of tens of thousands of jobs.
