Sterling Heights, Mich.-based energy/utility management firm adds service line to support horticulture industry

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., May 25, 2011 –– EnerWatch Systems today announced that it has added EnerGrowTM to its widening line of services. Developed specifically for the horticultural industry, EnerGrowTM plays a key role in more accurately managing air quality, humidity and temperature environments.

“Accurate, real-time monitoring of both humidity and temperature, as well as overall air quality, will help maintain optimum conditions for plants and produce,” said Dominic R. Pizzo, founder and president. “Each plant variety has unique requirements if top quality yields are to be produced. Temperature and humidity histories from each planting and harvest cycle, for example, can provide an essential guide to future decisions. Additionally, data obtained can be used to inform day-to-day management decisions around disease prevention and critical areas of risk management. Controlling the ambient concentration of carbon dioxide also is a critical importance.”

Key features include:

• Ability to remotely monitor temperature and humidity levels for the development of seedlings through full-grown plants and produce
• Accurate monitoring of ambient carbon dioxide concentrations
• Real-time monitoring of soil and air temperatures, as well as carbon dioxide levels, with remote frost, water saturation, drought, excessive heat, and air quality warnings
• Monitoring of climatic parameters to better identify microclimates as part of land mapping projects

According to Pizzo, setting up a suitable monitoring program is often the most complex and time-intensive component of the growing process. He notes, however, that it is an essential risk management tool for protecting all other investments made in the business.
“Introducing a simply and cost effective monitoring program such as EnerGrowTM will cut plant losses and unnecessary costs, as well as identify hidden weaknesses in the overall environmental control program.”
