Ordering & Payment

What forms of payment are accepted? How do I pay?

We understand each person will want to pay in unique ways so we set up multiple payment methods. You can pay with cash, debit/credit cards, money orders or direct deposits/wire transfers to our bank account. However, no checks please. You can pay directly at our warehouse at the time of your pickup. Or we can email you an online invoice with a link to pay with a debit/credit card. Please note that payment must be received in full before we ship the product.

What is the lead time? Do you have any available right now?

Auto dep Power Requirements

What are the power requirements for the system?

The power required for the system is between 130 and 200 watts. If your greenhouse is shorter it will require less power because there is less of a weight load. If your greenhouse is longer more power is required because there is a larger weight load. Volts: 24V DC, Max Amps: 8A, Max Horsepower: 0.1HP. Don't worry these motors have plenty of power- they are rated for greenhouses over 150 feet!

What kind of power supply do I need?

You can power the system by plugging into a standard electrical outlet, 120V AC, (on grid). Or you can power the system with 24V DC by wiring two batteries in series (off grid).
