The shiny blue glass tower to the left of the photo's center is a newly opened apartment building that generates much of its electricity through wind; uses solar heating for hot water; harvests rain water to save on energy transport costs; and recycles used "gray" water on site. It's also designed to be highly efficient with heating and cooling.
