Topic: Renewable Energy and Mico-Grids for the Cannabis Industry

Ross Fisher and Jonathan Mooney of Pure Power Solutions will discuss the state of solar energy, energy storage, and micro-grids. The focus will be on how the cannabis industry can take advantage of the available technology, financial incentives, improving their bottom line by lower energy costs. In addition, they will describe how business owners can increase their overall energy resiliency.
