Case studies include the use of energy curtains to reduce energy consumption.

For those operatng in Union Gas territory, there are incentive programs available to help growers identify natural gas savings. 

According to the utility, energy efficiency studies and surveys can identify and prioritize energy saving opportunities for your greenhouse. They will also go a long way toward determining your energy priorities and identifying what actions will save you the most money, prioritizing your limited investment funds and project management time.

Successful programs have been instrumental in freeing up dollars and improving bottom line performance in the past, Union Gas says, adding that it provides funding for both process and energy efficiency studies and surveys. Options include:

  • Process studies 
  • Steam trap surveys
  • Energy efficiency feasibility studies
