Eco fence / climate change

Eco fence
Eco fence

Eco fence is designed to prevent orchard from chilling injury. Chilling injury, one of the extreme weather in winter, causes the loss in production of high economic fruit in subtropical regions. This kind of clean energy design is to reduce the damage caused by chilling injury, and to convert the cold wind power into thermal energy, providing orchard higher temperature. With the breeze through the board, thermal energy will be brought into orchard. Electricity stored will be used to heat from 12am to 3am, the most dangerous period of chilling injury each day. Therefore, Eco fence can reduce the threat to fruit trees and also help the farmers.
