Federal investment fuels expansion of bio-waste heat for greenhouse

By Kevin Yarr, CBC News, March 5, 2020

The federal government is putting up more than $700,000 to help a P.E.I. organic produce farm heat its greenhouses with renewable energy, according to federal government news release.

Federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau was at Schurman Family Farm in Kensington to make the announcement Thursday.

"This first-of-its-kind technology to be installed in North America is a terrific example of how producers from coast to coast are looking to grow greener," Bibeau said in the written release.
