Private solar power installations at homes and businesses more than doubled last year in New York City and Westchester County.  In 2009, 134 PV systems were installed in that area and solar power capacity was 4 MW.  Last year, there were 203 PV installations, bringing the capacity up to 8.5 MW. Westchester County installations actually fell slightly from 2009, but the New York City boroughs ramped up their solar.  Queens actually quadrupled its installations from 16 in 2009 to 64 in 2010, adding over 1,538 kW of capacity. Utility company Con Edison is taking the credit for the solar boom saying they promoted the economic and environmental benefits of solar power systems and also streamlined the approval process for residential systems under 25 kW.
