The Renewable Energy Solutions: Hydroponics project will be a multi-semester design and build project with the end goal of creating an efficient and robust outdoor hydroponics system to grow plants without soil while utilizing a solar component to offset energy use. The hydroponics team is also collaborating with faculty in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department to test out new, innovative growing techniques in hydroponics. The team hopes to build an affordable and effective hydroponics setup, and communicate the benefits of hydroponics to Cornell and the Ithaca community.
