Title: Dealing with the High Cost of Energy for Greenhouse Operations
Primary Authors: Joyce G. Latimer
Published: 2009, Virginia Cooperative Extension,
Abstract: Increased fuel costs and colder than normal winters make heating costs a significant burden on many greenhouse operations. So, how can growers deal with high energy costs in the greenhouse? The problem can be addressed in several different ways. Growers can conserve energy in the greenhouse, evaluate alternative or additional fuel sources or heating systems, evaluate growing temperatures and other production practices, consolidate operations into less space, critically evaluate when to bring the next greenhouse into production, and streamline operations.
