Description: "At Rosa Flora we are constantly working towards reducing our fossil fuel requirements. We have achieved significant energy savings by implementing the latest green; technologies. By switching from natural gas boilers to biomass-fueled boilers, we have minimized the net carbon dioxide produced, as the biomass is a carbon dioxide neutral fuel. We also have a co-generation system and wind turbine, which provide us with alternative sources of electricity, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.
In early 2006, we investigated the possibility of installing a wind turbine for our operations. Our interest in green energy technologies coupled with rising electricity prices prompted us to pursue a wind turbine that was the right size and fit. In February 2006, we purchased a brand new German engineered wind turbine - PWE650. By September 2006, we had the turbine commissioned and were producing 615 kW of electricity per kWh. The electricity is delivered directly into the Rosa Flora system and offsets electricity required from the Ontario grid."
