“We’re thrilled to collaborate with DEEP,” said Oppy’s Category Director of Greenhouse Kevin Batt. “By integrating a greenhouse into their facility, we’re not only promoting local Canadian produce but also reducing environmental impact and food miles. This partnership symbolizes the future of farming, aligning with Oppy’s commitment to innovative practices.”

According to a recent press release, DEEP is set to develop Canada's first-ever geothermal power facility at Saskatchewan’s U.S. border, strategically positioned near the CanAm and the Trans-Canada Highways for optimal distribution access to all four cardinal points. DEEP’s facility will use the Earth’s natural heat reservoirs, ensuring low-emission power generation to support its operations alongside its state-of-the-art greenhouse.
