Next week the New York City Parks Department will be adding a landmark addition to their green roof research facility.  The NYC Parks Department oversees the largest know US green roof systems test facility and will be adding the Sun-Root solar living roof to their collection.

Located on Randall's Island, the Parks Department Five Borough Administrative Building houses over 29,000 square feet of test green roofs making the collection the 5th largest green roof in New York City.  The outdoor laboratory features over 25 different systems of various growing media depths.  Weather stations and temperature sensors minor the conditions on the systems and update findings every 15 minutes on their website for public comparison.
