Day 20: Green Energy in the Village
The main source of green energy within the village is mainly solar panels. Solar panels are found all around the village, such as in farms, on top of our living quarters, and on the street in general. An example of green energy is windmills that you will find on the mountains. These windmills provide electricity that is distributed in around town by wires. While going to laundry there is a very clear example of green energy. At the front of the alley way there is windmill that has a solar panel on it. I think that they use this so that they can receive energy by the wind from the windmill and the sun energy from the solar panel.
When it comes to recycling there XiZhou is on top of things. Everywhere that you see a trash can you will see that it is split into two groups. Trash and recyclable. In of people not seeing those evident signs of what goes where there are sometimes also kind old ladies who stand there to collect the recyclable bottles. We also have a recycling tub in YJR. By my observations it is probably 3 times the size of a regular trash can and it is very hard to miss.
