Greenhouses can save

In many greenhouse operations, energy is the second largest overhead cost, right after labour. Upgrading to energy-efficient lighting and adding controls can lead to optimum growing conditions and less wasted energy.

Cut costs on livestock farms

Energy usage on livestock farms has grown over the past 20 years, due to round-the-clock operations. Energy-efficiency upgrades to fans, lighting and automated controls can reduce costs significantly.

Keep buildings efficient

Mechanical fan systems use a considerable amount of energy. Energy-efficient upgrades to your HVAC systems and building envelope can help farms control wasted energy and reduce electricity costs.
