Great Northern Hydroponics in Kingsville has installed a natural gas-fired heat and power generator. It is efficient, cost saving and environmentally responsible – and it generates enough energy to sell 12 megawatts into the grid. In addition to electricity production, hot water and carbon dioxide from the co-generation facility is used by the company for heating and fertilizing crops in its 50 acre hydroponics greenhouse.
