Halifax-Capital of Nova Scotia

Hey class!

Today the teachers and I went into Halifax, the capital and largest city of Nova Scotia.  Nova Scotia is the province I am located in, a province is basically the same thing as a "state" in the USA.

One of the coolest things I saw was the Halifax Farmers Market.  The roof of the building was covered with renewable energy resources!  In addition, the water used in the building is collected from rain water from the roof.  Awesome!



There are two "renewable energy resources" found on the roof of this building.  Can you tell me what they are?  I know it may be a little difficult to see in the picture, but look hard!  Also, think about the location...the building is located right next to the water.

  3. One renewable resource that I see on the roof of the market is solar panels. They harness the sun and convert it into energy that is cost effective and great for the environment. Another resource that I see is the wind vanes. They harness the power from the wind and create energy just like the solar panels. Being able to have solar panels and wind vanes prove resourceful for all of Nova Scotia's weather patterns.
