Poultry farming, both for broilers and for egg production, is a large and important segment of Pennsylvania’s agricultural sector. It also tends to be energy intensive, with high loads for lighting, ventilation, and winter heat, among others. The Farm Energy Day: Poultry Farm Energy Efficiency Opportunities webinar will discuss energy use trends and opportunities for improving efficiency on poultry farms. Also included will be a presentation of program opportunities that can help reduce the costs associated with energy efficiency measures.
This webinar is provided with support and funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) State Energy Program. Pennsylvania farmers who participate will have the opportunity to request a timer for their engine block heater.
