1/4 Acre Greenhouse Energy Audit

The document that may be downloaded below is a snapshot of the first 4 years the CEA lettuce greenhouse was used for production. Electricity and natural gas usage is detailed and energy costs are given by month. Many changes have been made to the management of the greenhouse since these figures were collected. The plant growth room (which accounted for 35% of the total energy usage) is no longer used for germination.
