Governor David Paterson and Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy joined LIPA and other solar companies in Brentwood to break ground on a project to turn 7 Suffolk parking lots into solar power lots. enXco, a wind and solar project developer, is building carports that will generate electricity from the solar panels on top of them, and sell the power back to LIPA for a profit. And the county will receive money in rental fees for leasing the space to Enexco.
