SOLAR BUILDINGS - Another approach to the design of sustainable buildings is to install on buildings either passive solar systems to produce hot water or solar photovoltaic panels to produce electricity. Above is a photograph of the K2 sustainable apartments in Windsor, Victoria, Australia that are built with not only both passive solar and solar photovoltaic systems, but also are made of recycled materials and include rainwater collection on the roofs.
