Solar Installation

Worksman Cycles used incentives from New York City and state as well as the federal goverment to install a solar array on the roof of its factory. After other energy efficient upgrades the panels now provide about 25% of their energy. Clearly there is room for more, but when tax incentives expire or evaporate in a recession it's harder to justify the upfront costs. Apparently the industrial elevators use the most juice of anything in the factory, so they try to use them as little as possible.
