Rooftop Design / September 8, 2018 / Juan M. Tate
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.
The design of the rooftop wind turbine is important for several reasons. Aesthetics is one of the larger reasons homeowners today would want to put a renewable energy generator atop their houses. Also rooftop wind generators can be a status symbol that one is doing ones part to help the environment create jobs for others and lower bills in these tough economic times. Some wind turbines make more noise than others. The biggest complaint about a series of rooftop wind turbines placed at the Logan International Airport in Boston has been from an office worker below that says they make too much noise.
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).
