This Dixon Model combines everything in one design to face the hush challenges we have on the building site: no power, no water, no shelter, only an empty farmland with hay uncut. We plan to face it headon with PyraPOD Global’s CTO, Richard Nelson, and everyone else who want to help.
This model is similar in shape to a greenhouse built in 2012 at Lindum in Norway (click to watch). Beside its off-grid challenge, this current model has incorporated a full set of iAVS Sandponics inside to increase the capacity of solar thermal storage. As a result, we get fish, vegetables, and most importantly, environment control for extreme weather conditions.
The building site is located in Redwater, AB, Canada, which belongs to the Sturgeon County in the province of Alberta. This drone video shows the building site in more detail:
A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up, here is the URL: gofundme.com/f/pyratunnel-aquaponics-calgary
We plan to cut the 40′ seacan in half along the length and place them 12′ apart. Then bury them 4′ into the ground.
We bought a portable power system from CreateSolar.ca what needs two large solar panels to charge it.
Eventually we bought a 1985 Komfort RV trailer that works well. Next we need to add water to it. Everything else works fine.
We plan to rent a machine and do the digging ourselves.
