Green energy news

--  Quote of the Day -- 

  “Cultivate your curiosity. Keep it sharp and always working. Consider curiosity your life preserver, your willingness to try something new. Second, enlarge your enthusiasm to include the pursuit to excellence, following every task through to completion. Third, make the law of averages work for you. By budgeting your time more carefully than most people you can make more time available. Does the combination of curiosity, enthusiasm, and the law of average guarantee success? Indeed it does not! …Success in the final analysis always involves luck or the element of chance.”

I love celebrating green initiatives especially in the construction industry because this is a significant contribution to the future of society. 

I learned of a special solar tunnel that was under construction and just had to share it with you. 
 Apparently this European tunnel is unique in combining railway travel with green energy. 

The tunnel's roof, which runs for more than 2 miles, is lined with high efficiency solar panels (some 16,000 panels). The electricity produced by those panels will be used on site for things like lighting, signals, signs, heat, and to help power the trains as well. This simple, though technologically advanced, project can help reduce C02 emissions by just under 2,500 tonnes annually.
