The Skydrain Gathers Green Energy and Helps Families Beat the Heat

The Skydrain is a functional eco-energy gatherer designed by Jared Moore. Moore's design is essentially a giant outdoor covering designed to gather not one, not two, but three types of renewable energy.

The Skydrain has solar panels on its roof, built-in wind turbines and hydro electric generators. This essentially allows Skydrain to be gathering power at all hours of the day. Skydrain's unique design is meant for public places, making it useful for both power companies and the public. I don't know about you, but coal-fired power plants are definitely not somewhere I want to spend my Sunday afternoon at. While the Skydrain may forever stay a concept, I wouldn't be shocked to see energy gathering structures appear in public places sooner rather than later. There's a world of renewable energy out there, we just have to harness it.
