  8. Thermal Storage for Small Farms

    SBC: QUANTALUX, LLC            Topic: 812

    Energy expenses are typically a significant portion of a farm's budget - often as much as 10 percent of total costs. Agriculture has been hit hard by recent energy price increases, with small farms feeling the negative effects the most. This project will assess the feasibility of using long-term thermal storage where renewable energy can be captured when available and cached into a thermal storage ...
