Abstract

During the past three years, a reflective daylighting panel was developed to bring more light into standard greenhouses during the winter months. The panels were shown to bring additional light to the crop level when there was significant global horizontal light available and the roof glazing was free from obstructions (i.e., snow, condensation, dirt). The overall panel effectiveness is discussed.
