“It’s just incredibly energy efficient, but we’re also getting better production because the system is gentle. I don’t think I would have gotten there without the technical support.”
– Sue Wyman, Producer
How did they do it?
They had constructed a cold climate greenhouse for both their crops and livestock, but regulating temperature proved challenging year-round. Sue worked with a CEO AgEE Program energy auditor to develop a free, customized energy management plan for her greenhouse. Following her energy audit, she received free support in pursuing grant funding that covered 50% of the cost of her energy projects.
What was the outcome?
With the help of the CEO AgEE Program, Gunnison Gardens was armed with the technical know-how to allow them to triple their spring plant sale through “dramatically improved seedling production”. They are now seeing real energy cost savings of $500/year, reduced labor, and better sales as a result of this effort!
The CEO AgEE Program has been helping Ag producers increase efficiency of their operations over the past five (5) years. To date over 250 audits have been conducted across 40 counties where producers have avoided over 2 Million kWh’s and have identified over 16 Million kWh’s of potential savings.
