Energy reliability and the rising costs of electricity are among the energy challenges facing food growers and producers today.

These challenges are driving the need for simple and practical solutions that provide the agriculture industry with on-site, clean power generation.

An energy-as-a-service microgrid offers a simple solution for the industry, but what is energy-as-a-service? How do you know if it’s a good fit for your company?

To learn more about how energy-as-a-service can make it easier for agricultural companies and food producers to adopt microgrids, join us Tuesday, March 29 at 2 p.m. EST for a live webinar hosted by Microgrid Knowledge and featuring a panel of industry experts.

Registration is now open for the educational panel discussion, which will be held Tuesday, March 29 at 2 p.m. EST. Click here to register.
