Doef’s Greenhouses is constructing a 13-acre hydroponic vegetable greenhouse and Horseshoe Power is constructing a co-located tri-generation power plant. The tri-generation plant utilizes natural gas from surrounding natural gas fields as fuel and generates electricity, heat, CO2 and water for the greenhouse. Otherwise waste heat will be recovered and used to heat the greenhouse and treat water for plant irrigation. Exhaust CO2 from the power plant will be captured, cleaned and injected into the greenhouse to optimize photosynthesis and plant growth. Also, more energy efficient grow lights and advanced vegetable inspection (reduced spoilage) will be implemented. Emission reductions from the project are estimated at approximately 23,000 tCO2e/yr.
