Microgrid Tech Could Solve Major Cannabis Problem

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / April 1, 2019 / According to the Cannabis Energy Report released by New Frontier Data last October, the production of legal cannabis is projected to consume 162 % more energy by 2022.

"Based on the 16.4 million pounds of cannabis cultivated in 2017, the resulting electricity-based carbon emissions associated with that level of production was 1.8 million tons," the report continued.

By this same time next year, the cannabis industry will be producing 2.6 million tons of CO2 emissions. But with a market worth almost $10 billion last year, the increased demand for cannabis is not going anywhere. Rather, it will be met with a demand for cleaner, more efficient energy resources. Especially in North America where indoor and outdoor cannabis cultivation could contribute upwards of 1.2 million pounds of carbon emissions.

Microgrids and microgrid software solutions are up to the task of managing the type of electricity usage by enormous and expanding cannabis grow operations, ultimately improving their efficiency in consumption. These energy technologies provide better way to manage this increasingly complex energy issue the cannabis Industry has presented.

A company we found with an ideal solution is CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK). CLSK has developed a microgrid power solution for the cannabis industry, which can reduce energy costs by up to 82%. This represents a huge potential revenue stream for the company. Start your research today.
