Smart greenhouses generate electricity without affecting crop growth

Researchers have developed innovative “smart” solar greenhouses capable of generating renewable electricity without impeding plant growth. In these electricity-generating solar greenhouses, initial crops of tomatoes and cucumbers exhibited the same health as those cultivated in traditional greenhouses, according to scientists. This breakthrough is achieved through the use of Wavelength-Selective Photovoltaic Systems (WSPVs), a cutting-edge technology
