All the energy used on the island will be from renewable energy! There are three sources of energy that will make this possible:
1) a wind farm
2) a hydroelectric plant
3) solar thermal collectors
Also, gas powered cars and motors will no longer be allowed on the island. Making sure there is enough energy at all times for its 11,000 people is a tricky business. This is a huge breakthrough!
Making even one location totally “green” will help the entire world understand better how to make renewable energy work.
How totally kewl is this!
