Microgrids and the Cannabis Industry

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 12, 2019 / According to a new MarketsandMarkets™ report the Microgrid Control System Market is expected to grow from an estimated $2 billion in 2018 to USD 3.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 13.01%. Microgrids are becoming a must have in many industries.

The $3.5bn cannabis industry is one of the nation's most energy intensive, often demanding 24-hour indoor lighting rigs, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems at multiplying grow sites. CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK), 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%!

Today we are highlighting: CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK), MKS Instruments, Inc. (MKSI), BWX Technologies, Inc. (BWXT), Aurora Cannabis, Inc. (ACB), and Tilray Inc. (TLRY).

CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK) (Market Cap: $177.995M; Share Price: $4.29) just dropped a major update, giving shareholders guidance on several initiatives.

Highlights from CLSK's latest update include:

  • Closing a $5 million round of funding
  • Engaging a firm to navigate the company's up listing
  • Announced the near completion of a $900k contract to install a CLSK microgrid at a U.S. Marine Corps Base
  • Continued progress on their $18.3 million deal with NYSE company MAC
  • Closing of an acquisition adding $3.6 million in gross sales to CLSK's bottom line during early 2019 alone

Back to CLSK's statements on cannabis, CEO S. Matthew Schultz continued to point out, "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.
