A microgrid powers Ontario greenhouse

Dean Comand - Project Manager, The Green Organic Dutchman

A full-fledged microgrid that enables "The Green Organic Dutchman" greenhouse to be energy independent. The electricity is produced by a 5.2 MW cogeneration plant and a 2 MW diesel generator, as well as cold water, boasts an independent circuit that avoids waste. All the various systems work together to render the greenhouse operations more efficient and to create a virtuous cycle. The cogeneration by-products, on the other hand, are used in the greenhouse. The complexity of this microgrid provides for careful daily maintenance activities and meticulous control, to ensure that the entire system can run without any interruptions. This, as it operates in isolation mode and therefore without any connection to the power grid.
