VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — Oppy has partnered with DEEP Earth Energy Production Corp. to build an integrated greenhouse in conjunction with Canada's pioneering geothermal power facility.

DEEP is in the process of developing Canada's first-ever geothermal power facility at Saskatchewan’s US border, strategically positioned near the CanAm and the Trans-Canada Highways for optimal distribution access to all four cardinal points, Oppy said.

“We’re thrilled to collaborate with DEEP,” said Kevin Batt, Oppy’s category director of greenhouse. “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.”

“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,” the organizations said. “This initiative, in partnership with Oppy, aims to establish an exciting new model of sustainable agriculture, channeling geothermal energy, heat and CO2 for year-round cultivation.”

"We are looking forward to beginning the construction of this project after years of meticulous planning, once financing is secured,” said Kirsten Marcia, founder, president, and CEO of DEEP. “Our future collaboration with Oppy will mark a crucial step toward creating a sustainable future with this plant, marking an impact not only in power generation but in agriculture too."
