Mayor Bill De Blasio's One City: Built to Last plan has been a positive step forward for New York City's energy landscape. By 2050, New York City greenhouse gas emissions will be slashed by 80% if all goes according to plan. Achieving that goal will require a huge effort and the implementation of many innovative ideas and technology, and one that we applaud is the addition of solar panels in New York City schools.

If we’re really going to save the planet, we have to start by fixing the inefficient aspects of our built environment.
