I am planning to setup a small-scale hydroponics setup. I’m open to a few locations, but what worries me is unreliable electricity supply in most places. I was wondering how do people who have large-scale hydroponic farms manage electricity? Inverter battery would be way too expensive for having 6-8 hours backup, which I think should be the minimum I’ll like to have. It’s way too risky that the whole field may die if there is a power cut for 10 hours, which is quite possible once in a while.
Can someone throw some light on this?
