Renewable Energy with Aeroponics
Go Green with Aeroponics Global Initiatives, we have a fully proven 'off of the grid' DC format that allows you to use any source of DC Energy, From Solar to Wind! Just think of the possibilities!
Renewable energy wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, and biomass provides substantial benefits for our climate, our health, and our economy.
Here you see Mark Cassidy, one of the co-inventors with one of the original Single Stackable Growing Towers. The equipment you see there is a solar panel with control box, panel and batteries. We took two 12v DC batteries and hooked them together to make 24v DC and the solar panels keep them charged up. Because the system operates on 24vdc and only runs for 45 seconds and then is off for 5 to 10 minuets, the solar panels can keep the batteries charged up and the system can run at night and on cloudy days.
The reason that we went with a 24vdc system is two fold. One was being around water we felt that if we went with 120v AC there is a greater chance that someone could get shocked and we didn't want anyone to get hurt.
Also if you are growing where 120v AC isn't available you would be able to grow with solar panels, wind generators, or small hydroelectric generator. So if for some reason your power should be interrupted you can keep your system running with two 12vdc car batteries.
