Greenhouse farming system has so many advantages, such as the easiness to grow plants in cold climate and enhance the production, quality, and the overall output of the products. On the other hand, this arrangement requires additional input that increases the cost of production. The main function of a greenhouse is to trap the heat of the sunlight and provide additional energy for photosynthesis. In greenhouse growing, the stabilization of temperature swings is the primary challenge. This can be done by the people to adopt the conventional which can provide the additional energy via heating or cooling systems into the greenhouse. Solar energy is a very important source, directly connected to the greenhouse as a power supply. The smart and sustainable method to establish a stable greenhouse environment is to harness the additional surplus solar energy collected during the day time after that store that energy and then consume it during night or during unfavorable weather conditions.
