Everybody I speak to agrees that new buildings should be built with solar panels, or at least with a “green” roof. France now decrees it.
Rooftops on new buildings built in commercial zones in France must either be partially covered in plants or solar panels, under a law approved on Thursday.
Green roofs have an isolating effect, helping reduce the amount of energy needed to heat a building in winter and cool it in summer.
Merci France, bien fait! (Which reminds me I have to get back to Duo Lingo)
