Barbados Agrofest 2012: Solar-powered poultry farming

Another interesting idea from Agrofest that combines renewable energy and agriculture: solar-powered poultry micro-farming.

The sun provides the power to run the lights and heaters needed to maintain conditions for the young chicks. In the below photo, you can see a prototype of the solar-powered chicken coop being demonstrated. I was told that the coop is large enough to successfully rear a batch of 20 chickens.

The development of this innovation was supported by The Barbados National Oil Company Ltd. and the Barbadian alternative energy company Innogen Technologies.
