The solar panel-laden behemoth in the rendering above is P.S. 62, a school set to open in Staten Island next year that will allegedly produce more energy than it consumes. How? Well, there are the solar panels, as well as a wind turbine, exercise equipment that generates energy, and geothermal wells for heating and cooling. According to the WSJ, the school may even be able to sell excess power back to the grid.
