We have developed an energy-saving horticulture facility inside a glass greenhouse. There is limited sunlight and low temperatures during the winter season. Thus, controlling light intensity and temperature inside the facility is important for maintaining a natural environment in the Hokuriku region. The temperature was monitored at the top of the greenhouse, and supplement lamps were turned on when the air temperature from the top of the greenhouse was below 20℃ during the day. The light supplement system maintained the light intensity in the planting area at more than 150μmol m^<-2> s^<-1> regardless of the weather. On sunny days, the warmed air in the top of the greenhouse was circulated downward to the plantation area, and thermal storage units made of PET bottles were used to keep the hydroponic culture solution tank warm. The energy-saving air cooling system was constructed using a combination of water spray and an electric fan. A ventilation duct was used to drive the outside air. When the temperature inside the cultivation area exceeded 28℃, the cooling system was activated, and an electric fan pumped outside air into the plant cultivation area to maintain the temperature under 36℃. The systems maintained the temperature in the planting area at 5-36℃ when the outside temperature was -5 to 20℃. Our results confirm this system is applicable to winter strawberry cultivation in the Hokuriku region and does not require air conditioning or fuel consumption for a heater.
