Solar Energy in New York – Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

John Ericsson Society
New York


John Ericsson constructed a solar observatory on the roof of his home at 36 Beach Street, Manhattan, and built working sun engines. In 1876 he published “Contributions to the Centennial Exhibition” in which he described his scientific and technological research in solar energy.

Solar One, the City’s first solar-powered “Green Energy, Arts, and Education Center”, inspires New Yorkers to become environmentally responsible city dwellers. It seeks to reach out to the New York City population in order to connect people to the urban environment around them.
