Case Study: Implementing and Monitoring of Microgrids used in Agriculture

Operational susceptibilities in the indoor agriculture sector compromise crop integrity. Examples of the risks associated with power faults, communication breakdown and system failures will be discussed. Resiliency is key whereby use of on-site microgrids can avoid financial loss, damage to equipment or crops and avoid business interruption. Advanced analytical anomaly detection, reporting, KPI’s, data aggregation, […]

Case Study: Micro Generation for Indoor Agriculture

A microgrid is a local system of distributed energy resources and electrical loads that can operate as a single entity either in parallel to the commercial grid or independently from the grid. This presentation will showcase how the system can be used to provide emergency backup power during commercial grid outages, or when connected to […]

Maintaining Essential Power through Energy-Independence

It’s easy to get in the habit of relying on the flick of a switch to deliver power. But power outages happen, and even the smallest interruption can throw indoor growing operations off. Cannabis growers need to establish an energy plan to mitigate the loss of essential power infrastructure. Solar microgrids are able to provide […]

Cannabis & Renewable Energy: A Step Forward in Growing Sustainably

Cannabis cultivation in the United States is on pace to consume nearly 1.8 million megawatts-hours of electricity. That energy demand is only expected to rise and will greatly impact the operational costs for cultivators. With energy costs accounting for 20-40% of an indoor grower’s total operating costs, solar energy is a game-changer for the cannabis […]

Case Study: SolarCell Indoor Farming using DC Microgrid Technology

This presentation will cover direct solar integration into microgrid power systems for indoor growers. A combination of power comes from solar, while back-up power can still come from the grid, and on-site back-up from the natural gas generator and batteries. During power faults, the indoor growing environment will be unaffected. Lithium-ion battery energy storage system […]
