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.
