Abstract: Apart from labor, energy is probably the top operating cost for most growers. Therefore, one of the best ways to help reduce costs is to improve the energy efficiency of their operation. Energy efficient greenhouses cost less to operate, and in some cases perform better than less-efficient facilities. When you think about the fluctuating and (usually) rising costs of energy, it only makes sense to ensure that your greenhouse is as energy efficient as possible. This list gives some of the most common successful measures that greenhouse growers can use to reduce energy use without compromising the performance of their greenhouse.
