The city is kicking off a search today for companies that would install 50,000 square feet worth of solar panels atop the Brooklyn Army Terminal’s main industrial building, according to the Post. The $10 million project would result in the largest solar-energy system in the city, partially powering the 97-acre office and industrial complex in Sunset Park and two smaller city-owned sites that haven’t been picked out yet. If it succeeds, the Bloomberg administration is looking to replicate the technology elsewhere, including at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. The Brooklyn Children’s Museum and the Queens Botanical Garden already have solar panels to supplement their energy stores, and City Hall’s 2,100 square feet of solar paneling is on the way. The city’s Economic Development Corporation is pitching in $2.65 million of the Brooklyn Army Terminal project’s cost, while up to $4.5 million will come from Con Edison-secured federal grants and the rest, from federal tax credits.
