Critical Commentary

This article discusses ways in which NYC has lost its potential for renewable energy production after their nuclear power plant shut down and the hydro-electric pipeline project was a flop. The city doesn't have the space to invest and create renewable energy plants. However, one option would be to close Rikers Island's jail and use the space to build a solar panel farm. That said, the plant's closure set New York back on its carbon emission targets and certainly has slowed down a move to renewable energy power.
