Being green can be a beautiful thing, both literally and figuratively. With the development of technology, alternative energy systems don't have to compromise the aesthetics of a building. Both residences seen here are designed to capitalize on great sunlight exposure.The Bayshore project now under construction will use a geothermal system coupled with a ground-mounted solar array that will generate 11KW for its energy needs, while the Southampton project seen below, has been using shingle-style photovoltaic panels in addition to its geothermal system. As the demand for clean energy grows, one can only imagine the builiding innovations that will follow.
