Solar power increasingly used at Biogrow production sites

Biogrow Substrates is proud to announce that we’re one step closer to running our operations sustainably. Not only is the coconut a sustainable product, but now we will be using renewable energy in the form of solar power, to run some of our grow bags production.

While full sustainability is our long-term goal, every step we take towards preserving the environment, helps us protect our planet for future generations. To achieve this we are constantly looking for new ways to make our production facilities as energy friendly as possible. Over the last 18 months our teams in Sri Lanka & India have installed solar panels on the roofs of multiple buildings and at each site we’re aiming to produce around 170,000 kWh each year, which equates to an annual saving of 170 tonnes of carbon.

The longer-term project is to produce all the electricity needed at our production sites through solar panels.
