Interplant is always striving to have as little impact on our environment as possible. As well as our fully enclosed hydroponics system with no discharge to the environment, and our widely acclaimed wetland which deals with our reverse osmosis waste, at the same time providing a home to a wide variety of birdlife, we have now added a grid tied solar energy system which at its peak can provide almost 100% of our power requirement.
We are always on the lookout for new ways to preserve our fragile environment!
It is well known that wetlands are among the most productive ecosystems in the world, comparable to rain forests and coral reefs. They are also considered the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems, serving as home to a wide range of plant and animal life. Wetlands benefit protecting and improving water quality, providing fish and wildlife habitats, storing floodwaters and maintaining surface water flow during dry periods. These valuable functions are the result of the unique natural characteristics of wetlands.
Our solar energy system is an important way of deriving power from the sun through the use of solar panels. It is fantastic that solar energy provides a clean and green source of energy.
