Seeing your new greenhouse through Magenta-colored lenses

Michael Loik, professor in the environmental studies department at the University of California-Santa Cruz, describes the potential of Magenta tinted panels to enable greenhouses to generate electricity. The use of this Wavelength-Selective Photovoltaics Systems technology is to reduce the electricity demand from the grid by generating it onsite while supporting healthy growth of edible plants including basil, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, strawberries, lemons and limes which were trialed.

The concept is described in more detail in this article at Greenhouse Product News
