Now that the mums are gone, and the poinsettias are getting ready to colour up, it’s becoming clear that winter is just around the corner.  With the colder temperatures outside, comes the ramping up of you heating system. Remember those energy bills from winter’s gone by? Have they got you thinking about doing some energy-efficient upgrades in your greenhouse?

The engineers at OMAFRA have been especially busy this year building GO-CALC – a tool to help estimate your energy use in the greenhouse AND how retrofits can help to make your greenhouse more energy-efficient!  The tool shows how those energy-efficient upgrades like energy curtains, new greenhouse coverings and boiler upgrades that you may already be planning for your greenhouse can help you save energy.

The Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) will be hosting a webinar, on how to use GO-CALC on Wednesday October 18th 2017 at 12:30pm.  If you’d like to learn more about the tool, you can register by clicking here.

If you can’t join in person, tutorial videos have been created that allow you to walk through a few examples in your own free time.  You can find them online in both English and French.
