Name White Rooftop Project
Date N/A
Description of the project In America, millions of rooftops are made of tar. They absorb great amounts of heat during sunny days. By covering black tar roofs with solar-reflective white paint the temperature side and out reduces immediately. This sustainable low-cost solution helps save energy, reduces carbon emissions, reduce brownout and potentially saves lives. The project mission is to educate and activate, contribute to science and policy, and engage volunteers to complete a project in their cities.
