Solar power, to rebuild New Orleans

0
Global Green USA, an American green organization, has promoted a contest for rebuilding the areas devastated by hurricane Katrina with homes including solar energy, energy efficiency tools and green materials. Architects, Urban Designers, students, local residents and construction firms have applied to the contest, which already has 9 finalists.

Global Green Usa has Brad Pitt's help in the contest promotion. He said that "maybe they do not reflect New Orleans historic architecture, however it is time to look at the future".

Mr Pitt added that there is a great opportunity for New Orleans to rebuild the city using economical materials and quality-of-life improving applications, notably in low income communities. 

Global Green USA provides technical assistance within New Orleans' environmental standards for 10,000 buildings in the city. Last June, the company opened a resource center for advisory and information purposes, focusing on green construction materials and building strategies.
