A solar off-grid energy system to power greenhouse-based horticultural projects

OUR MISSION

Agriculture in the 21st century is facing the challenge of increasing food production to feed the growing population with fewer resources, low environmental impact, while adapting to climate change. In particular, population and thus food demand growth is mainly concentrated in the sun-belt regions. These areas are characterized by abundant solar resources, severe water scarcity, and poor infrastructures. The greenhouse (GH) industry has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about farming.

SOLHO has developed a system called SPRHOUT (Solar PoweRed Horticultural Off-grid Unit) that makes it possible to deploy completely off-grid greenhouse-based horticultural projects, boosting the transitions towards Sustainable Food Provision.
