Product Description

Farms have found CHP to be a self-sufficient source of electricity and heat. Combined Heat and Power can provide the energy needed for farm operations and food production while reducing emissions and saving on energy costs. Crops, agricultural waste, or offal can be used to produce biogas to run the CHP. The ability for farms to make use of their waste in order to create power helps them be environmentally friendly while cutting costs. Increasingly, farms using CHP have been able to send electricity back to the grid, which helps the communities around them.


Benefits of CHP in Agriculture 

  • Increased reliability
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Reduce emissions
  • Reduce costs


Project Example

Athlone Farm – Tavistock, Ontario, Canada

Athlone Farm is converting methane from cow manure and bio waste to electrical and thermal energy. This 600-acre dairy and crop farm had a biogas system constructed that can power at least 500 homes. By using methane produced from their farm manure and imported organic waste, the system reduces atmostpheric methane, creates a better quality of crop nutrient and supplies clean bedding for the farm’s dairy animals.
