When we were looking at the numbers several years ago, we were looking at 
tomatoes which we cannot ripen here past November due to lack of light. To 
add the light necessary for winter production we would have been heating 
electrically as heat is a big by-product of the lighting ballast. The only 
way that would come close to working would have been generate our own power 
(diesel) and capture the engine heat.
