Rooftop Design / August 30, 2018 / Juan M. Tate.
There are times when space becomes limited. And for some people (especially residents that are housed in backyard less houses) sometimes an empty roof can become an outlet for other leisurely interests (can also recreated into an outdoor space for accommodating guests) or hobbys. Now as for gardeners the top area of their apartment or any other high-rise theyre in can then be converted into rooftop gardens. There are a lot of rooftops that are rarely developed into something more useful thats why a lot of people are getting more creative and more resourceful when it comes to space constraints (thus the evolution of green roofs for healthy cities).
It is not required that you use only one method to build your rooftop farm. You can mix and match any of these so you can maximize your space as well as your crop yields. From San Francisco to New York City rooftop wind turbines are hitting the home front. Rooftop wind turbines are being installed on both homes and businesses at an unprecedented rate due to several factors including the desire to save electricity cut down owns dependency upon fossil fuels and as a visible symbol that one is doing their part to go green.
Some rooftop wind turbines will work more favorably when on the edge of a rooftop such as one that is long and flat (sort of like being on the edge of a cliff with an updraft). Others however on roofs with more angle or pitch will work more favorably in a higher location. Finding the right spot on the rooftop can add 5 to 40-percent more efficiency in electricity generation. One of the most obvious points is for home and business owners in rather windless areas to not buy rooftop wind turbines but rather opt for other alternative energy resources. Wind maps may help some determine if there is enough regional wind to justify the purchase of building of a rooftop wind turbine. Buying an inexpensive anemometer and tracking results is also helpful before making a decision.
Solar panels or photovoltaic panels (PV) are one of many investments that should be considered if you plan on saving money and generate electricity. They are called solar panels because the mount absorbs light the most effective form of source (the sun) and generate the light to electricity. While rumors of Global Warming continue to rise the concern for our green environment has also risen. This is why everyone should also pay attention to your eco-footprints. Everyone plays a role in global climate change whether it is littering toxic hairspray sprayed in the air cars spurring fumes. This is why everyone should give to an eco-friendly solution. With photovoltaic panels coming into action the elimination of gas electricity and other wasteful energies are diminishing. Photovoltaic panels are an effective stepping foot into a eco-friendly environment while saving you money in the long run.
