World’s First, Four-Season, Fully Autonomous, BIPV-T Greenhouse: Approaching Completion

It’s easy to do a three-season greenhouse. It’s also easy to do a four-season greenhouse provided one burns enough fossil fuels for heat during winter. The challenge that we undertook with this project is to do a four-season greenhouse that functions solely on renewables, i.e. no fossil fuels, and is off both the power and…
