Greenhouse & Agriculture
In greenhouses, Cat gas generator sets simultaneously deliver electricity for lighting or sale to the local grid, hot water for facility heating, and carbon dioxide as an organic fertilizer for increased crop production. The future belongs to cogeneration, or CHP. We are facing high energy prices and, as an entrepreneur involved in greenhouse cultivation, you will be experiencing this at first hand. More and more entrepreneurs are therefore acknowledging the many advantages of decentralised power generation. With the conventional (centralised) method, a large proportion of the output is wasted due to heat loss. This is not the case with Toromont designed CHP systems. With our CHP systems, heat and power are generated ‘on site’ achieving overall efficiencies approaching 90%.
