Energy Audits

A greenhouse energy audit is the process of identifying different ways that an operator can potentially reduce their energy costs.  The audit identifies how energy has been used for operating a greenhouse, including heating systems, cooling systems, lighting, water heating, irrigation, and ventilation, then identifies potential energy-efficient alternatives.  To learn more about greenhouse energy audits, download this fact sheet.
