Problem Statement

How might we increase the amount of renewable energy our school uses?


Customer / Problem

The customer is businesses and schools that are attempting to improve their environmental sustainability. Often it is confusing and expensive to do so and we want to make it easier for the customer.


Solution

A self-sustaining vertical farm that uses LED lights to grow produce for 24h. The farm can be produced to suit the specific needs of the building in which it is being installed. Farmers will be employed for the maintenance of the gardens to ensure they aren't put out of work.
