Added on 30 January 2023
Bunzl Canada has announced its sponsorship of a community-scale, solar-powered greenhouse at the Alberta Avenue Community League (AACL) in Edmonton.
“We are very excited to partner with Exceed Solar and the AACL on this innovative project,” said Margo Hunnisett, Bunzl Canada’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “We believe that access to food, especially fresh produce, is essential for building strong, sustainable communities. We’re committed to supporting initiatives to address food insecurity and hope this new greenhouse will serve as a model for other communities to follow.”
The innovative project was initiated by Edmonton’s own Exceed Solar, a local start-up business founded on a passion for the environment and a commitment to making a meaningful impact on the planet by promoting alternative energy and sustainable living. The new greenhouse will feature advanced technology, including a 1.2kW solar energy system, a heating and cooling ductless pump, and an Internet of Things (IoT)-based environmental monitoring system.
