Solar-Powered Indoor Urban Farm by Metropolis FarmsOctober 06, 2017
Located in Philadelphia, on the fourth floor of a large warehouse, Metropolis Farms wants to promote local food: “We are empowering a new generation of farmers to grow food for cities, in cities.”
The new massive solar array contains 2,003 solar panels on 100,000 square feet, capturing enough sunlight to supply over half a megawatt of energy. Beneath those panels, Metropolis Farms is constructing an indoor vertical farm that’s predicted to grow “the equivalent of 660 outdoor acres worth of crops.”
Planting with the company’s proprietary indoor farming system begins in November.
