July 30, 2008

EcoGeek – Technology for the Environment says:

The importance of green buildings can’t be ignored, and this seriously cool community of 52 houses is showing what’s possible in micro-communities. The Drake Landing Solar Community in Okotoks, Alberta has put up 800 solar panels on garage roofs to help cover their heating needs. The solar power-heated community is a first for North America. And this community went WAY beyond just solar water heaters.

And toronto has 1 wind turbine… we so cool.
