Tea Farm Update - Solar Power Now In Place

At the base of the hill where rows of tea will grow now stands a solar installation powerful enough to service the lower well for the existing ten-acre almond grove and the filtration and circulation for the lower pond. Producing 1800 watts per second, this is only the first phase. The second phase, when in place, will provide for the upper well and greenhouse - running the cooling fans, water pumps, filters and all other essential resources to support the nursery for new tea plants.

Then, with water and power in place, the ground can be prepared to receive the varietals that have been selected for the first test field.
