Beijing is cleaning up its act for the Olympics by cutting cars and buy viagra uk cleaning up algae sludge – but that’s not all they’re doing. Such a popular event is the wow)) cheapest cialis prescription perfect place for businesses to showcase their green projects. That thought crossed the minds of SolarWall, Conserval Engineering, Natural Resources Canada and the Olympic Village developers, who all partnered up to create one of the world’s first SolarWall PV/thermal hybrid systems.

Mounted on the roof of one of the buildings used for athletes during the Olympics, the system produces both electricity and heat energy from the same surface area, beating out regular old PV systems by 200-300% more energy.
