Eat your Solar Veggies

Alternative and renewable energy should not only be a new gimmick or a subject for politics. “Green” energy can really be practical, applicable and green – as in vegetables for your table.

Two recent innovations come to mind. The Agri-Cube by Daiwahouse in Japan and Skygreens from Singapore. Although both applications for alternative energy are still priced above the average citizen’s pocket, it opens the way for producing fresh veggies in a small space, uising recycled water, climate control and solar energy.

The Agri-Cube consists of a specially designed “green-house” container that fits into s single parking space, as in the included photograph. The Skygreens concept uses a 9m high stack of rotating planting trays, and might be researched further at www.skygreens.com.

Yes, green energy gives you fresh greens every day!
