A hybrid PV-thermal integrated greenhouse dryer is a highly effective device that has been developed for drying of vegetables and fruits, moringa leaf, neem leaf, copra and herbal raw materials. The device has been integrated with a PV module. The PV module produces DC electrical power to operate a DC fan for forced mode of operation and also provides thermal heating for creating a greenhouse environment. A UV stabilized polycarbonate sheet has been fitted over the structural frame of the dryer which helps in trapping the infrared radiation.
