Chinese City Considers Solar for 100,000 Buildings

[Shanghai Daily News] The Shanghai city government is looking into a plan to install solar panels on the roofs of 100,000 buildings around the city to relieve power shortages and reduce pollution from coal. A feasibility study on the project is still under way, but close to completion, according to a professor from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The school’s solar energy institute is conducting the study. The solar panels will generate electricity from sunlight, and can be connected to the local power grid to sell excess supply, said Wang Kangyue, the institute’s deputy director.
