The Hybrid Model
Hybrid Tech has taken the sustainable greenhouse industry to another level with the development of its patent pending Hybrid Model. This new design is a unique facility that uses artificial and natural light to decrease energy use by up to 53% while maintaining output.
Build Consultations and Services
At Hybrid Tech we can consult on your build from your existing prints or prepare a set of new prints in record time. Our CAD modeling team can produce a set of structural, mechanical and electrical prints drawn to your specs and stamped by our professional engineers or you can use our field proven designs. Hybrid Tech has over a decade of experience working with general, mechanical, electrical, security and plumbing contractors. We can also refer you to our extensive network of contractors and facility maintenance staff. Additionaly, we provide in-house diagnostic services such as thermography, energy efficiency evaluations, LEED certification and more.
Now with Measure 91 and I-502 compliant security systems. Let our team help you push your project through the red tape and into reality.

The Hybrid Model
The Hybrid model is a blend of existing greenhouse and indoor technologies into a single high performance format. The advantage of this model is having an outdoor closed system greenhouse facility utilizing both natural sunlight and daylight harvesting artificial light to grow the highest grade indoor quality cannabis. Heat recovery systems recapture indoor space thermal load to heat the greenhouse year round. The Hybrid Model can also be applied to existing buildings where a transparent roof material is utilized, thereby supplementing sunlight with heat recovery and lowering the energy usage of the structure.
The Hybrid Model (patent pending) can be applied to existing structures or built as a stand alone facility.
New builds have decreased energy usage and decrease build costs. Return on investment on the last 60,000 sq. ft. traditional canopy build was 23 months. The Hybrid Model (patent pending) ROI for a 60,000 sq. ft. canopy build is estimated at 11 months. (ROI based on 2014 models and is regionally specific. ROI is provided for demonstration purposes only and will vary greatly based on factors such as utility costs, rentals, labor costs, regional product pricing, etc.)
- 47% decrease in build time.
- 53% decrease in energy use.
- 50% increased ROI and full facility ownership vs leasing.
- 100% maintained production level.
