SketchUp 3D Challenge #145 - Sustainable Energy

Sunday, 03 June 2012 - Wednesday, 13 June 2012

View Entry Models | Status: Finished

From WikiPedia:

"Sustainable energy is the sustainable provision of energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Technologies that promote sustainable energy include renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, wind energy, wave power, geothermal energy, and tidal power, and also technologies designed to improve energy efficiency."

Your job is not to model "sustainable energy" but to model something, man made, that is designed to produce sustainable energy. It can be real, conceptual or something out of your own imagination. Just be sure to use your energy wisely because this challenge's lights will go out on Wednesday, 13 June 2012.

    3 Points to A.J.unknown - love the light effects
    2 Points to Henkie - detail, detail, detail...
