Design your own energy-efficient solar greenhouse
This introductory 1-hour webinar presents the essential basics for designing and building your own custom, energy-efficient greenhouse for year-round food production. Energy-efficient greenhouses enable you to grow your own food year-round, without relying on fossil fuels or transported foods. We cover the basics of passive solar greenhouse design and renewable / sustainable climate control methods.
Intro to GAHT Systems
A Ground to Air Heat Transfer system can provide sustainable heating and cooling for year round greenhouses by taking advantage of passive solar heat of the greenhouse and the thermal mass of the soil underground. While simple in concept, GAHT systems require the right materials, layout and installation to be effective renewable energy heating and cooling system for efficient greenhouses of all sizes. This webinar will address how a GAHT system works, it’s major components and give an overview of how to install one.
Planning a Commercial Greenhouse
Energy-efficient commercial greenhouses normally require a building permit and multi-stage construction process. Learn how to approach this process with our webinar for first-time commercial growers. We give tips on navigating the permitting process, and setting up a construction schedule, as well as resources for budgeting the project.
Creating an Energy Efficient Cannabis Greenhouse
Growing with natural light enables year-round production that is far more sustainable, energy-efficient and cost-effective. But even a year round cannabis greenhouse often has high energy costs, which can make your operation less competitive. In this introductory webinar, we explain the basics of energy-efficient cannabis greenhouse design, including the pros and cons of passive solar and hybrid greenhouse designs, and how to choose efficient climate control systems. Focusing on structure design and HVAC are where you can reap the most savings in your production facility.
