'can grow potatoes, strawberries, broccoli, celery seedlings, etc...IGS’s farms between 19.6 & 42.6 feet in height, footprint of 450 sq ft. Each tray is about 62 sq ft, and the company has grown as many as 50 crops in a single tower...'Broccoli normally takes six weeks. Our system ~11 days. Seed potatoes that normally take 18 months, our system will do it in 2.5 months compared to traditional farming. We can grow chilies in about a month. Basil normally takes a month to grow; we do it in about 16 days.'

The Solar Podcast is brought to you by Continental Energy Solutions with host Tim Montague, NABCEP PV Technical Sales. Continental is the largest commercial & industrial solar installer (solar EPC) in Illinois with over 100 projects and 60 MW of rooftop, ground mount and utility scale solar installations in the Midwest.

We interview solar professionals, manufacturers, developers, financiers and other subject matter experts on renewable energy, energy storage and the energy transition. We dive into  how solar creates ROI for facility owners, how solar finance works, solar economics, pollinator friendly solar, and solar equipment and technology trends. Whenever possible we put a Midwest spin on your solar and storage news.
