During the summer of my sophomore year my dad and I built a 20’x30’x18’ active solar greenhouse which circulates air between two plenums connected by 900 ft of perforated corrugated pipe within a 3000 cubic foot soil heatsink below the greenhouse. The system captures daytime heat and moisture, stores it...
