The growing potential of energy-efficient pot farms

The Growing Potential Of Energy-efficient Pot FarmsCannabis industry is a heavy energy user but has potential to go green with the right technology and incentives

Cannabis production is among the most energy-intensive industries in the U.S. But some experts, growers, utility companies and local government agencies in states where marijuana is legal point the way toward reducing pot production’s energy consumption and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions.

In Colorado, where marijuana was legalized in a 2012 referendum and became available for sale through licensed growers in 2014, new official data on the industry’s energy use signals the challenges ahead.

One study found that Colorado growing operations in 2014 used energy equivalent to that consumed by 35,000 households.
