New York Gov. David Paterson recently announced a plan to increase the state’s use of solar power.  Paterson wants the state to install up to 100 megawatts of solar photovoltaic power systems at public and private facilities such as schools and municipal and commercial buildings. According to the New York Power Authority, 100 megawatts could power approximately 15,000 homes.  

The initiative is part of New York’s 45-By-15 energy plan, which aims to have the state running on 45 percent efficient and clean renewable energy sources by 2015. Here’s a link for more information on New York’s energy initiatives.
