“Morocco is looking ahead to a bright future. Literally.
The government is installing energy-efficient lights and solar technology in more than 100 mosques in 2016 and plans to expand the program over the next five years to include 15,000 state-funded mosques. That represents nearly 30% of all mosques in the country.
The so-called “green mosques” initiative is part of Morocco’s ambitious push into renewable energy. It’s spending billions of dollars to wean itself off imported fuel and reduce emissions by ramping up the use of energy efficient technology and renewables.”
See Morocco: 15,000 mosques are going greenYes! Roofs of buildings and wide open spaces are great places to collect energy from Nature to run our lives. It just makes sense to go green. All new buildings should have this built in saving even greater costs. To break even in a few years makes this one of the best investments we can make.
In the next few years I intend to set up a small solar/wind farm on my property to do things like supply backup power, charge batteries, and perhaps charge my electric car (Which I don’t have yet.).
