Post-Sandy Solar Project Launches in N.Y.

Three solar power companies have partnered up to help relief efforts in New York communities severely affected by Hurricane Sandy. 
  
Under the Solar Sandy initiative, Solar One, SolarCity and Consolidated Solar have already deployed five 10 kilowatt mobile solar generators to help residents and relief workers get much-needed temporary electricity, with the first three installed over the weekend in Rockaway Beach - the same area where Greenpeace's Rolling Sunlight was recently situated - and one in Staten Island.
 
With fuel for traditional generators scarce and a number of fires caused by their improper use, solar electric generators have been a welcome addition to efforts to help get residents back on their feet.
