GREEN ENERGY

HOME / ABOUT / GREEN ENERGY

At UK Salads we are committed to working with our environment which is why we have invested heavily in Green Energy by way of our Combined Heat and Power Plant.


This plant allows us to produce electricity for the National Grid, while also giving us enough CO2 and heat to supply our own nursery.

  • Two engines use natural gas to generate electricity.

  • Water from our underground table is warmed using excess heat from the engines and then piped around the glasshouses.

  • Exhaust fumes from the engines are purified using Urea to create CO2 for our nursery.

  • Electricity generated is used to power the site.

  • Excess electricity is sold back to the National Grid.
