Greenhouses with Integrated Energy Systems
Solar Innovations, Inc., an industry leader in greenhouses and alternative energy solutions has recently begun integrating these two product lines to provide a single source solution. By the integration of solar panels into custom greenhousesand other glazed structures, Solar has provided customers with an aesthetically pleasing method for generating “green energy.”
The integration of PV solar panels can be accomplished through multiple methods by using standard solar panels or solar insulated glass units. These panels can be glazed into most greenhouses by encapsulating the solar panel or glass unit, creating a waterproof solution.

|English: Competing English greenhouse manufacturers leave their fasteners exposed.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Solar Innovations, Inc.’s fasteners are hidden behind a cap to provide our greenhouses with a more cohesive design.|
|English: Our English competitors’ greenhouse shades hang from the roof lines (leaving exposed pull chords) and do not directly attached to the framing.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Solar Innovations, Inc. greenhouse shades are directly attached to the roof line with no pull chords left exposed to provide a more visually appealing option.|
|English: The ridge cresting attached to competing English greenhouse is flat and has a one dimensional appearance.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Solar Innovations, Inc.’s ridge cresting are textured and profiled to provide a three dimensional appearance that is far more substantial than the cresting found on our competitors’ greenhouses.|
|English: Many greenhouse competitors employ single pane glass that does not aid in energy efficiency.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Greenhouses by Solar Innovations, Inc. feature double and triple pane glass with stainless steel spacers. Tempered and/or laminated glass is also commonly found in Solar’s greenhouses. High performance LowE coatings can be applied to glazing, depending on location, orientation, and plant needs.|
|Door Closers and Door Hold-opens|
|English: Door closers and hold-opens are not common among our English greenhouse competitors. Owners of these greenhouses often have to prop their doors open with a brick or other heavy object.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Solar Innovations, Inc. offers door closers and door hold-opens that allow customers to easily pass through the doorways of our greenhouses. By not having to prop doors open, door frame finishes are protected from scratches.|
|English: Small window bays are common among our English greenhouse competitors. These small bays create shadows inside of greenhouses.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Because Solar Innovations, Inc. manufactures our own operable and fixed windows, we are able to integrate windows with wider panes of glass into our greenhouses. These wider panes reduces the amount of shadows and shade inside the greenhouse to create optimal growing environments.|
|English: Traditional English greenhouses are use wood framing which can eventually rot, require repainting, and be subject to regular finish maintenance.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Solar Innovations, Inc.’s greenhouses feature aluminum framing which will not rot, rust, or require constant finish maintenance.|
|English: English greenhouse competitors do not cover the finish on their stainless steel screws under their warranties. These exposed screws will eventually begin to chip and become and eyesore. Screws that are exposed to the elements can also often lose functionality.||vs.||Solar Innovations: The screws in Solar Innovations, Inc.’s greenhouses are hidden. Because the screws in our greenhouses are not visible, customers need not worry about their warranties and can rest assured that they will never become unsightly.|
|English: English greenhouse manufacturers are based in England, which does not experience extreme temperature fluctuations like we do in the United States. Because these greenhouses are designed with England’s climate in mind, they do not always perform as well in the US.||vs.||Solar Innovations: Solar Innovations, Inc.’s greenhouses are manufactured in America in our LEED Gold Certified facility located in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania. At Solar Innovations, Inc. we live and work with our products every day.
