The green roof will harness the sun's energy using solar panels as well as the wind through vertical wind turbines and send it to the fuel cells. The solar panels will also heat up hot water for usage. The roof will have event space as well as planter beds connected to the aquaponic system. The roof will also be designed to maximize rainwater collection from every aspect of the surface.
