"How large is your farm? What agricultural waste products are you producing and in what quantities? Also, I am curious to know what the power requirements are for aquaponic systems. If someone has wattage needs that would be great. "

"I can't deny that. I do however however. Think in that case an evacuated tube water heater would be the best short term investment for you. If you get the 80 gallon thermosiphon model they are about $1500 and about 70% efficient. PV panels are…"

"$6/day * 30 days/month... that is about $180/month... I pay about $100/month to NYSEG... That hardly seems like a deal to me and I didn't pay anything for batteries or a generator up front."

"Has anyone tried heirloom veggies versus traditional veggies?  Is there a difference in productivity between them?  I'm shooting for mostly if not all heirloom veggies, so I can market them as such at our local farmers markets."
