Canada Plans Eco Friendly Cité Verte

Backed by Quebec's government, the $300 million project includes 800 homes that use 30% less energy and reduce water usage by 50%. The project includes on-site solar power, LED street lamps, waste recovery, rainwater management and narrow streets to encourage less car usage and promote self-service bicycles.
