A tiny power plant in the greenhouse
Combined heat and power units
Our growers generate their own heat with a combined heat and power (CHP) unit. The heat that is released is used by the grower inside the greenhouse. The grower can also put the electricity to good use in the greenhouse. A large proportion of the energy is not used and is supplied by the grower back to the grid.
The CO2 that is released by the process is needed by the plants to grow. It is a very efficient system! A CHP is a good way to use fossil fuels.
