Rooftop Design / September 8, 2018 / Juan M. Tate.
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.
A less obvious issue when deciding on putting up a rooftop wind generator may be any obstructions current or future that could block the full wind from getting to the generator. Trees other buildings hillsides or even large vehicles can deflect the wind away from the turbine. If the rooftop is inside a city filled with buildings the wind path can become quite tricky as it may bounce from one structure to the next causing turbulence and an inconsistent flow.
Homes and facilities with little to no space for farming and gardening is something common to urban places. In urban places people have learned to adapt their desire to start farming or gardening through different methods that allow them to start planting even with just little space. If you have a space to spare in your rooftop you too can start rooftop farming in your home or office. Rooftop farming is a practice that lets people make use of any rooftop space that they have for farming as well as gardening. Different crops can be grown depending on the space that you have. You can plant herbs and small vegetables if you have a small to moderate sized space. If you have bigger space you can also employ vertical farming on your rooftop.
Usage of Recyclable Materials Recyclable materials like plastic containers doors frames bricks and wood scraps can be used to start a rooftop farm. You just need to assemble them neatly so that you use them to grow crops. Usage of Greenhouse If you can afford it you can also use a greenhouse to start a farm in your rooftop and build a vertical farm. A vertical farm on your rooftop would come out to be very beneficial as you will be able to produce a lot of crops while using only a small amount of space.
