    Keeps the house warm enough to grow veggies all year round. The glass traps and amplifies the warmth of sunlight.

    Who needs solar panels when you can use the concentrated heat of the sun to generate electricity?

    Decades into the future, technology will be so advanced that hydroponic agriculture will become cheap and widespread. More and more vegetables will be grown indoors, in a controlled environment. Hydroponic buildings using wind to generate electricity will create the ironic situation where the wind chill factor actually provides heat when that wind hits a building.

    Greenhouses, solar panels, piezo-electricity, there will be a coterie of sources of heat or power.
