Why not to use windows instead the roof panels? In New York, every day the sun covers a lot of area in the highest building of the city, so, why not to surrogate windows by high tech solar panels to take advantage of the same space? If you want a detailed strategy to do this, keep reading:
- Do a deep research with clean teach firms (like GreenTechMedia and NanoSolar) to select carefully which are the best buildings in NY to be included in this project
- Then, select the best solar panel set to accomplish this
- You don´t have to remove all windows, just the best exposed to the sun, so, you have to calculate which are the best ones in every building.
- Then, we can use all building techniques used by high level Asian buildings to install quickly and efficiently the solar panels.
- Them you should install some way to storage this gathered energy for example the Epsilon Project from Energy Saving Management devices.

Seriously? People will give up windows for solar panels? And why not sun tracking roof panels?

I am not sure if NY qualifies as a Sunny state for a Solar Panel implementation.
