Green House in Winter

I am trying to find an alternative way to heat my small greenhouse during the winter so that I can continue to grow veggies, herbs, etc.  I have tried electric heaters and electricty is proving to be very expensive.  We have had below 0 temps at night.  Do any of you have any suggestions as to using solar or wind to run a small heater during the winter?See More
