Wind Turbine at Rosa Flora Greenhouses

In early 2006, we investigated the possibility of installing a wind turbine for our operations. Our interest in green energy technologies coupled with rising electricity prices prompted us to pursue a wind turbine that was the right size and fit.  In February 2006, we purchased a brand new German engineered wind turbine - PWE650.  By September 2006, we had the turbine commissioned and were producing 615 kW of electricity per kWh.  The electricity is delivered directly into the Rosa Flora system and offsets electricity required from the Ontario grid.

In 2006, Rosa Flora received recognition from The Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation on becoming an Industrial Energy Innovator. The Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation helps companies create a stronger economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.
