ABSTRACT
The article presents several projects related to renewable energy sources. The Social Security Administration (SSA) made a contract with ComEd to complete one of the largest federal installation of solar electric system in the Midwest. The system is to be constructed in Chicago, Illinois. Its Photovoltaic (PV) modules cover 7,920 square feet of roof space on the SSA building's roof and generate 100 kilowatts of renewable electricity. Another project is the 210-kilowatt (peak) thin-film photovoltaic system that forms the roof of the Stillwell Avenue Metro Station on Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. The system is said to be the world's largest thin-film building-integrated PV solar electricity system.
