Lets start with what a green building is.

A green building is a structure that leaves little to no carbon footprint. This building is fully self efficient in heating itself, power supply, and lighting. One method of green energy is power turbines. A power turbine is like a windmill, the spinning creates energy which then gets converted into usable energy. A second common method is extended over hang from the roof to the wall on buildings. What this does is creates a larger shadow covering windows, stopping direct sunlight and heating of homes.
