The truth is, there is a strong business case to be made for cultivating in controlled environments. And in the near future, as renewable energy options increase and climate change continues to impact weather patterns, there will be a strong sustainability case to be made as well.
The obvious benefit to tiered applications is the ability to increase canopy square footage without additional building square footage. Although there are some drawbacks to multi-tier growing, there can also be great reward, and so we’re seeing more and more of our clients choose to go this route in their facilities.
Apart from our deep expertise and value in engineering design, where we can provide equal value to our clients is in the design-build HVAC model. The complexity of systems in cannabis facilities usually necessitates a well-coordinated effort, with an experienced, well-qualified central party taking responsibility for the mechanical system from concept to design to equipment and integration.
Cultivating indoors helps many growers continue to harvest year-round, even in cold-weather climates. However, it makes little sense to have to run air conditioners at full capacity to cool indoor environments when ambient temperatures are below freezing. Find out how utilizing dry cooling could lower your monthly operational costs.
We know it has been a while since we published a blog post but it’s not without a good reason. In the last several months we have been working diligently to launch a new Surna website and brand strategy to meet the changing cultivation industry.
You’ve finally gotten your license and funding, picked out a facility, picked out equipment and pulled the trigger. Now what? Sometimes, the hardest part of setting up a facility comes when you’re ready to begin construction and have to get everything in order. You want to be sure that your new equipment is going to be installed and maintained correctly and efficiently, offering you savings on operating costs and the peace of mind that your plants are healthy and safe all hours of the day.
Every week we to put together a blog that we believe brings much needed information to our readers. We really enjoy being able to share all the wisdom we gather in our various daily activities here at Surna to a reader base who will appreciate and use it. However, today we want to do something a little different. This is your warning: we’re plugging Surna today because it’s, well, awesome. And we want to share with you guys why we think Surna is so awesome.
We had a great time in Las Vegas last week for Marijuana Business Daily’s 5th annual Marijuana Business Conference and Expo. The energy was great following such great election results for the cannabis industry. In fact, people were so excited that the show not only sold out its 7,500 tickets, but it sold out an additional 2,500 tickets (and were still turning more people away) making this show one of the largest we’ve ever seen! Ten thousand people showed up proving that the cannabis industry is here to stay.
Tuesday marked an incredible moment in history. This election will be remembered as one of the most shocking of all time. Donald Trump is now president elect of the United States of America. But before you start packing your bags and looking around for your passport, remember that now 1 in 5 Americans have access to marijuana. Yes folks, cannabis was the big winner this year with four states (Massachusetts, California, Nevada and Maine) voting to legalize recreational use for adults 21 and older and another four (Florida, North Dakota, Montana and Florida) voting to add or expand medical use. These states together represent about 75 million Americans who now have some type of access to cannabis. With so much uncertainty about what happens now, we can take comfort in one guarantee– cannabis is not going anywhere anytime soon.
