Visitors to the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, have something to rejoice about. The observation deck on its 124th floor has thrown open its doors again, welcoming visitors to a breathtaking view. That’s not all. Environmentalists around have something to rejoice about too. This awesome 828 meter tall sky-driller has gone green, opting for solar power! The building will use its solar panels to heat 140,000 liters of water every day.

These solar panels are located on The Office, the Burj Khalifa’s annexure. Around 378 collector panels in all, these solar panels span measure 2.7 square meters each and can heat those liters of water in just 7 hours.
