Heat and Power Solutions for Greenhouses
Combined heat and power (CHP) systems provide a profitable and sustainable solution for greenhouses. By generating thermal energy and electrical energy simultaneously, a CHP system can yield a fuel efficiency rate over 90% versus the typical boiler efficiency of 40-50%. Typical payback on these systems is less than three to four years.

Aware of the odor issue, the Bettencourt Dairies management team began investigating solutions that would reduce both the odor and methane emissions from Rock Creek’s cows.
