Solar 2 New York City Carbon Neutral Beacon

Solar One, the little environmental awareness center on the edge of the East River, is about to begin construction on a much bigger facility called Solar 2. The new building will be ten times larger than the current facility, and will let them expand their public programs around energy efficiency, renewable energy, green building, and urban ecology.

Featuring an array of green features (solar production, water conservation) the building aims to educate and portray possibilities.  Construction starts next month.
