Standing under newly-replaced showers that illuminate the bill for energy items, you intend to carry a fresh tomatoes after your morning workout into the neighborhood garden on the roof of a HDB Multistory Parking.
The knowledgeable LED lights are on the table as you exit the bathroom and go into the kitchen to have breakfast. Your kids get ready for a green energy bus to kindergarten. They will hear about climate change in their carbon free school and compost their food waste to the school’s community garden.
Motion sensor lights are brought to life in common areas as you exit the house to work and head down to the double-wheel tracks where the two-wheeler was stored.
The next ride to the workplace takes 40 minutes. You dream of getting a picnic in the field, 10 minutes from your place, as you past the park connectors in the greenery.
Just when you land in a super-small-energy building in your workplace, it begins to leak. You try to recall just when you leave the house you close the curtains. The urban water collection scheme gathers the rainwater for unpotable uses in your block.
