Alabama Power Grows Crops in a Shipping Container with LED Lighting

Alabama Power has established an innovation project to grow food in a shipping container retrofitted with LED lighting provided by Freight Farm. The aim of the project is to find out if the cost of using electricity to power indoor agriculture is more efficient and feasible in comparison with traditional agriculture. The company started to cultivate lettuce, herbs, edible flowers and other vegetables in the beginning of 2017 after it installed a 40-foot hydroponic container. The container offered by Freight Farm is a fully assembled, hydroponic farming system with a seed germination table and 256 vertical towers which can hold up to 17 small heads of lettuce each. https://www.ledinside.com/
