Solar Electricity = New Orleans Resurrection

“A Make It Right house is eco-friendly from top to bottom, using at least 70 percent less energy than a conventional house of the same size. ‘We don’t just want to make homes ‘less bad’ for the environment,’ Pitt says. ‘We want them instead to have an environmental benefit.’ Thanks to their ventilation systems and solar technology, Make It Right houses emulate trees, purifying the air rather than polluting it and harnessing the sun’s rays to produce more energy than they consume. The homes are available exclusively to people who lived in the Lower Ninth before Katrina, and Make It Right guides families through the financing process.”
