HOUSTON, Nov. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aggreko, the world’s leading provider of mobile modular power, temperature control and energy solutions, announced that the company is the headline sponsor of the 2023 Greater Peoria Farm Show in conjunction with Farmers Powering Communities. Aggreko’s sponsorship of the event with Farmers Powering Communities underlines the company’s support of clean energy within the agricultural industry, and follows Aggreko becoming the strategic capital partner of Farmers Powering Communities earlier this year.

Staged from November 28-30 and entering its 41st year, the Greater Peoria Farm Show is Illinois’ largest indoor farm show, bringing together hundreds of exhibitors in a state with one of the country’s most important agricultural sectors. One of the Farmers Powering Communities partners, American Farmland Trust, America’s leading farmland preservation organization, will have a booth at the show, where visitors can learn more about Farmers Powering Communities. Along with American Farmland Trust, the organization brings together Edelen Renewables, Arcadia, and Aggreko to develop 500 MW of community solar projects on agricultural land, while also retaining farms and ranches.
