HighYield™ Greenhouse Kits
Ceres passive solar greenhouse kits are energy efficient growing environments for sustainable and abundant year-round growing. Most often used as commercial greenhouse kits, the HighYield™ Kit is designed to produce higher yields, using less energy.
The Greenhouse Kit Design
This passive solar greenhouse kit is a stable, easy to control growing environment. Our energy-efficient greenhouse design is created for maximum productivity, used in applications for which the highest yields are expected. Kits come in two depths: 23’ and 30’ deep and are scalable in increments of 4’.
The HighYield™ Kit is built with hot-dipped galvanized steel 2” x 4” framing sections, pre-cut to length. Along with highly insulated IMPs, glazing, and doors, our greenhouse kits include exhaust fans and intake vents, sized to meet the cooling load of the greenhouse (depending on the climate).
We ship all greenhouse materials to the job site where the greenhouse is erected by a local contractor. We recommend getting a Construction Manager to help in the construction process, especially if the the goal is to have a commercial greenhouse kit.
All of our HighYield™ Kits have an energy-efficient greenhouse design and are formed for modular capability, allowing for unlimited expansion without interruption, as well as the ability to operate multiple climates simultaneously.

All Greenhouse Applications:
We offer both do-it-yourself residential greenhouse plans and our steel framed BackYard Kit. For those interested in adding a larger growing structure to their residences we have many options.
Interested in commercial greenhouse growing? Our options include singular HighYield Kits, Attached HeadHouse Greenhouses, and Commercial Modular Options.
We collaborate with the Aquaponics Source to engineer greenhouse kits to include aquaponics systems for all of your growing needs.
Whether you are interested in a “living classroom” or a production greenhouse, we offer educational institutions custom solutions so that students can learn the inner workings of a greenhouse.
We support communities of every kind in order to build and operate a community focused greenhouse. This includes, but is not limited to: non-profits, towns, veterans and first nation tribes.
Looking to build a greenhouse in an urban location? On a rooftop? We have got you covered. We offer greenhouses for any urban application so that urban populations can grow healthy food without having to leave the city.
Commercial Greenhouse Technology
One centralized system for controlling the whole environment. Monitor temperature, relative humidity, and CO2, leaf/ canopy temp, PAR, lighting zones, and outdoor weather.
We offer Ceres designed EcoLoop™ or EcoPack™ HVAC options depending on growing goals, budget, site constraints, and greenhouse type.All Ceres environmental controls are custom integrated to suit your needs.
The GAHT® system is a ground to air heat exchanger, a system often referred to as a ‘Climate Battery’. Ceres leads the industry in climate battery technology, having designed and installed more systems in greenhouses than any other company in the world.
Different crops may demand specific lighting requirements. We offer a variety of lighting solutions designed to suit the needs of each individual operation.
A NetZero greenhouse will have zero net emissions. This goal is achieved through capturing and storing energy. This can be done using a various system options.
Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene is a durable, high light transmissive glazing option. It offers more than 95% light transmission, including the UV spectrum. More than other greenhouse companies, Ceres is implementing full spectrum glazings for maximum crop growth.

HighYield™ Kit Greenhouse Kits FAQs
You can install a HighYield™ Kit yourself, or hire installation out to a local contractor. You can also opt to have a Ceres construction supervisor oversee the construction process and direct your building crew.
Because each greenhouse is slightly different – tailored for your climate and growing goals—we provide custom quotes for all our energy-efficient commercial greenhouses.
We estimate US$58-US$68/SF for a 3,000sqft modular greenhouse facility. This includes: steel frame, insulated metal panels, glazing, SunSense™ Controller
For a complete vented structure we estimate US$95-US$130/SF. This includes everything listed above, and includes (but is not limited to), evaporative cooling, GAHT®, heaters, dehumidifiers, SunSense™ controller, LED grow lights, irrigation, complete engineering, and construction documentation.
This is a great budgetary number to use when considering all of your systems, including the incorporation of those mentioned below.
