Guelph, ON, May 30, 2018–On May 30th Ag Energy turns 30 years old! Ag Energy Co-operative was founded in 1988 by vegetable and flower greenhouse growers looking for a better way to purchase natural gas. The growers saw an opportunity to unite and formed the co-operative that grew into the modern day Ag Energy.
Ag Energy has changed significantly since the beginning: the co-operative now sells electricity, has more pricing options, and has opened our membership to all businesses in the agri-food, agri-tech value chain including food processors, dairy farms, wineries, cannabis growers, and ethanol production facilities. While the co-operative continues to grow to meet the members’ needs, it remains firmly rooted in its core values of contribution, caring, and co-operation. Thank you to everyone who made this success possible.
