NOW, A DESCRIPTION OF THE TWO SPECIAL ITEMS YOU ARE TO CREATE AS PART OF YOUR IDEAL PLACE IN STEP 1.... 1.GARBAGE COLLECTION - ENERGY PRODUCTION All the city garbage/trash collection bins will be connected to city lights. The devices will convert the waste into energy that will power the city lights when they are turned on. Additional energy captured will be stored and used for future energy needs. 2.SOLAR-PANELLED WIND MILLS - ENERGY PRODUCTION Wind mills placed throughout the city will be equipped with solar panels. The city will be obtaining energy from both the wind and the sun. The energy produced in these mills that are on various city buildings will power the energy needs of the buildings such as lighting, climate control, etc. As with the collection bins, additional energy captured will be stored and used for future energy needs.
