Australia gets greenhouse growing food in desert using solar power

South Australia gets greenhouses, which operate in a desert using just a solar power and seawater to produce food, Futurism.com reports. The facility is said to be absolutely independent of nonrenewable resources.


Daily, seawater is pumped 2 km from the Spencer Gulf to the farm with a total area of 20 hectares, after what the water is run through a desalination system. As a result, over 1 million liters of fresh water are produced on a daily basis, intended to be used to irrigate 18,000 tomato plants in a greenhouse.

Energy for the desalination system is generated by a power plant with 23,000 mirrors, which produce up to 39 MW of energy every day.
