Solar Powered Greenhouse

A 75-kilowatt array of photovoltaic cells generate power to support the system operations. Battery storage is in place as a backup for the nights and a diesel generator is always on standby to ensure redundancy. The design emboldens the concept of sustainability in a region where energy is still a premium. It is probably the world’s first solar-powered Aquaponic greenhouse.
