Climate Battery Greenhouse Version 2 and new PSU collaboration

We recently completed a second greenhouse project on the farm utilizing a revised version of our climate battery. Our plan is to use the new structure for fig production as well as heat-loving crops. We’ve created a new page for information on the structure, how it differs from the original, and revisions to the construction process to make it easier both time-wise and cost-wise. Check it out below.

We’re also excited to announce that we’ve partnered with PSU Harrisburg and their mechanical engineering department on a study of both climate battery greenhouses to improve their operation and the overall design. We’ll post updates on their progress as it begins to roll in over the winter on our climate battery greenhouse statistics page.

Climate Battery Greenhouse Information and Updates

We've recently installed a climate battery greenhouse (high tunnel) at the farm and are excited about the prospects. We're still learning as we go but we thought we'd post about it as we continue to learn more. I've created a page that describes the project, and another where you can see performance updates and data from the project.

If you're interested in inexpensive or low-energy-use means of regulating temperature in a growing structure, this information may be for you! If you've never heard of a climate battery greenhouse I'd encourage you to read on!

I'd greatly value your input to make this information as useful as possible, so leave a comment below if something is confusing, worded poorly, or just plain wrong. Click through below to learn more about the project!
