    Great video, but as a technically minded person, 10:30 got to me. By putting turbines outside of your fans, you're adding resistance. You can't just put a turbine behind a fan and run the fan, that would be perpetual motion. You can recapture some of that energy, but you're disrupting the flow of air and possibly reducing the efficiency of the fans.

    Perhaps, instead of on-site educational tours you could instead produce some detailed youtube videos.

    polycarbonate is not a petroleum product?

    what is heating your water, that is stored in underground tanks and would be cool like a cellar, which passes through the heat exchange radiators to heat your greenhouses…….. i guess this is the water you are feeding your plants and needs to be relatively warm…… and would be heated somehow

  • dsndicmsa 1 year ago

    so this system catches all the rain water it can, holds onto it as much as it possibly can and locks it away….. sounds great, lets begin doing this on a large scale.

    wow look at how cheap easy and simple that infrastructure is, and just look at the cheap abundant biomass per ha lolz

    I was under the impression that pilled seeds, as being used at 4:15, are by definition not organic. Also, the use of artificial fertilizer is not allowed in organic agriculture. Or maybe this is different in the USA?

  • Robert Ostman 1 year ago

    dang… they are using pvc… why do farmers opt for such polluting option when there are other options that do not pollute…

    Great work! What kind of nutrients do you use? I was under the impression that most water soluable nutrients for hydroponics were petroleum based.

    This guy is a genius and people like make the world a better place to live. This can very useful in countries like India, Japan, Russia, Egypt and the middle east. you can recycle water, use wind to produce electricity and use the waste to feed chicken. I am going to try this one day but on a smaller scale
