Alternative Energy - Solar & Wind
Green Infrastructure put into place for Stormwater management is just the beginning of the sustainability movement happening around us. Some more examples of ways to be greener are using solar power, electric cars, and even just making the conscious effort to recycle. For more information on recycling, take a look at our blog from earlier this year about going green: Go Green or Go Home.
