For those interested in the research and technical details, I opened up an account with ResearchGate, posted my profile, and started a project.

Here’s the goal for the project:

A system for controlled environment agriculture combines elements of mechanical and electrical design resulting in scalability and sustainability for agricultural production off the grid in a closed loop with network addressable components. The mechanical design includes a system of racks and stacked pans that increase the grow area without increasing the footprint, circulates the hydroponic solution that provides nutrients to the plants, maintains thermodynamic equilibrium of the water at the plant roots, transfers heat away from the light sources including Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), and oxygenates the water.
