Energy in Horticulture 2019

Event Time 9:30am
Venue Teagasc Ashtown, Conference & Training Centre, Dublin 15. Eircode: D15 DY05
This event is to update the industry in aspects of energy use in your business.

This seminar will introduce you to the SEAI’s Exceed programme; inform you about on-farm electricity generation using PV panels and wind turbines; NDP grant availability and tax incentives; the very latest on the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat and listen to one grower’s experience of installing PV. At an individual farm level investment in renewable energy will reduce the high cost of energy inputs. It will also give a green image to your product to give you the edge in the market place.
