lights out i cant get my flower room down below 55% ...they seem happy & got some fat buds in there..(fingers crossed) ... lot of air movement above and below the canopy ...lots of defoliation ...

I also have a portable airconditioner with a dehidify mode. Question: Is the dehumidify setting faster than cool mode? Or will cool mode reduce humidity faster?

Flowering in high humidity is not necessarily a death sentence. I want to put that out there incase you end up having to try it. It does increase the risk of mold but it's not a promise that you will get moldy buds just because. You can take other measures to try to mitigate mold like avoiding the use of wood in the grow space and filtering all your incoming air, cleaning your grow space, etc. I have seen great plants grown in high humidity, it's just not always ideal. So don't panic and just keep on and maybe you'll have a great success in the end regardless.
Thanks for the advice brother. I am old guerrilla who's finally looking at coming out of the bush. Its nice to know others have experience in growing in this type of environmental conditions.

You would still have to deal with the humidity, maybe it would be better being stable temps because of the ground.

Theoretically it could be less electricity in a greenhouse because of not having to run lights year round, but that would depend on how you equip the greenhouse, and use it

If your electricity is cheap, it may be somewhat close, depending on equipment used, lights, heat, fans,, cooling.

If you think reducing the rate of transpiration of the plants will help, apart from the aspirin, you could try pushing your nutrients/feeding up, gradually till your plant are taking the maximum they can without toxicity. Plants only transpire in order to siphon up fresh nutrient rich water at the roots. If they are well fed they will transpire a lot less than if they are hungry. If they are hungry they will endlessly cycle more water through themselves, from roots to stomata, in search of nutrients.
If you have high humidity where you are, period, its a tough one.

Something else to consider

When running bigger bud producing strains where mold/mildew is a real concern we run regalia. It works very well and is nice since it's not a foliar, you just feed it so it can be run later into flower. It's worth a read.
