Solar hot water for a greenhouse radiant floor at a high school in Vermont
I teach Natural Resources and Horticulture at a technical Center high school in Vermont. Part of my program involves our greenhouse.
Unfortunately, due to the cost of heating, we cannot use the greenhouse in the winter because of the expense of fuel. I/we would like to have the greenhouse open year round so that we can grow lettuce and other edibles for the culinary program here at school as well as for the local food shelf. The plumbing/electric program will install and my students will help as well. Any ideas?
The Vermont Small-Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program provides funding for new solar water heating, solar electric (photovoltaic) , wind, and micro-hydro energy system installations, including for schools.
The U.S. Department of Energy - Loan Guarantee Program might also be of assistance.
