Energy efficiency resources from Minnesota

May 10, 2012

As part of its Farm Energy Efficiency Program, the nonprofit agency ‘The Minnesota Project’ has created an extensive online resource centre.



It contains a collection of the most relevant information relating to on farm energy efficiency, including educational documents and technical resources. It is located here.

Greenhouse operators should scroll down and click on Technical Resources and Evaluation Tools and then Sample Audits and Case Studies. “The greenhouse audit is titled ‘Farm Audit – Greenhouse,’” says Jake Fischer, Clean Energy Program Manager at The Minnesota Project. “This was the audit our students completed through the course of their recent farm energy audit training program.”

Fischer also points out a video they recently created that outlines what it involved in an energy audit. “We created the video to help explain the value and purpose of an energy audit, as we’ve had a lot of producers bristle at the sound of the word ‘audit,’ and not be so interested in this potentially fruitful exercise,” he notes.
