One of the efforts applied to green building is the concept of vertical garden, where plantation crops which are usually planted on the ground are now planted on the walls of buildings that apply the green building concept. The existence of a vertical garden in the building is considered quite beneficial both in terms of air quality around the building and in terms of the use of electrical energy in the cooling machine because it can reduce the conduction load (thermal transmittance) on the walls of the room. The problem is the extent to which the vertical garden concept can save electricity costs incurred if solar radiation in buildings can be inhibited. In this study, the vertical garden effect will be tested on the cooling load of the room and the consumption of electrical energy. Two simulation rooms have been created and one of the rooms is equipped with a vertical garden on the wall. Both rooms are equipped with air conditioners to handle a cooling load to the room. Tests carried out by measuring the temperature of the outer wall and the inner wall of both rooms using data acquisition and conducted during the day. From the results of tests that have been carried out the wall temperature in the vertical garden is lower 1.2°C when compared to the wall without the vertical garden. Whereas for thermal transmittance and AC electrical energy consumption they were reduced by 8.6% and 11.3% respectively.
