Sharing Green Life
Sharing Green Life

Pi-Tang , a form of farm pond that ancestors in Taoyuan , Taiwan , excavated for water storage , had functioned as irrigation water resource shared by local villages for centuries .However , due to Industrialization and urbanization , the farm ponds become useless and their cultural value are being lost , causing their decline in quantity in the past few decades.
Inspired by the Pi-Tangs' function of water storage and irrigation system, Sharing Green Life features a new system of saving and sharing electricity power, which retains the historical and cultural value of Pi-Tang and meets the needs of the modern life in the community.
