162% Increase in Cannabis Cultivation

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 14, 2019 / New Frontier Data, the authority in data, analytics and business intelligence on the global cannabis industry, in partnership with Resource Innovation Institute and Scale Microgrid Solutions, released The Cannabis Energy Report: Current and Evolving State of Cannabis Energy Consumption. "Energy consumption and carbon emissions are critical issues for all industries, and cannabis cultivation is no exception. With an estimated 162% increase in U.S. electricity consumption from cannabis cultivation alone, not including other parts of the world, it is important that we begin to understand the environmental impact of this fast-evolving industry." With that in mind, we're highlighting a few companies that can help companies with this energy increase.

CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK) is one of the most promising. CLSK is a microgrid company, with a custom power solution developed for cannabis producers is in the right place at the right time. They have been ranked in the top 10 microgrids by Navigant Research, and in their latest press release stated, "(The company) is currently focusing our marketing efforts on the largest users in the Cannabis market, the agricultural (grow) facilities." This marketing effort should be fruitful considering their microgrid power solution for the cannabis industry cuts the monthly electricity bill of indoor grow-houses by up to 82%. CEO S. Matthew Schultz also stated, "an extended outage can even cause a full loss (of the farmer's yield), especially when the facility is growing a medically-certified crop. Energy resiliency is critical for these operations." With the microscope on these companies and how they scale, CLSK could be a major beneficiary of the rush to cannabis production efficiency.

Today we are highlighting: CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK), Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (BEP), Renewable Energy Group Inc. (REGI), Charlotte's Web Holdings Inc. (CWBHF), and Kushco Holdings Inc. (KSHB).
