PROJECT SUMMARY

Solar water heating and rainwater tower

There are simply too few houses for low-income families in Brazil. State housing programs work to decrease the deficit by providing basic standard homes.

Specialists used these initiatives to bring technology and innovation into the equation – a Solar water heating and rainwater tower provides a sustainable solution to domestic water storage and heating needs.
