The pine wood derby type capsule car module could be the transportation and utilities model for the self sustainable city. The module supplies, solar and wind energy to feed into the grid. Pumped water and compressed air serve as batteries which are charged by off peak solar and wind power. The same pumped water supplies the city with fresh water requirements. In essence the tower which elevates the cars will serve many purposes including water storage, solar cell panel mounting, wind turbine mounting, helipads for emergency teams, revolving restaurants and observation decks, offices, housing, schools, malls, factories,recreation centers and jet runways. In essence each module could be a mini city by itself. The mini cities are connected in linear or matrix models to form maxi cities
