    New York's Solaire: High-rise Solar

    March 10, 2004

    New York City's Solaire, a 30-story $100 million building, features 33 kW of PV systems, energy efficiency lighting, and energy-saving appliances. Says Anthony Pereira, president of Altpower, Inc., "It's a high-profile building in the solar world. Solar is not the cheapest product per square foot, so if you're going to put it on a building, why not have it work as your building's fa├žade to bring down the cost." See the story and photo.
