Last week we found ourselves in Seattle again for the NCIA Cultivation Management Symposium.

Being a member of NCIA, we’ve experienced firsthand how valuable the relationships that are formed and conversations that are stirred up at their shows are to this rapidly growing industry. The Cultivation Management Symposium was no different!

We attended many of the offered education sessions and had amazing conversations that led us to one key takeaway: energy usage in the cannabis industry is paramount.

Stephen Keen presenting cannabis technologyExternally, to those outside the industry, the public perception that cannabis is an energy hog is increasing. Internally, as an industry, there is a cry for technology to lower energy bills for growers and alleviate the demand on the grid.

Stephen Keen, our VP of Research and Development, joined CannaAdvisor’s Jay Czarkowski to give a keynote presentation on the advances in technology being created, by Surna and other companies, to specifically address issues we’re all experiencing, especially energy. You can review his presentation here.

A big thank you to NCIA for hosting such a great event and being an advocate for the industry.

You can catch us May 19-21 in Chicago for Marijuana Business Daily’s Spring Conference.

5 Common Cultivation Facility Design Mistakes

Indoor agriculture facility design is far more complex than most other construction disciplines. It requires careful planning and support from specialized experts to set a grow up for success and longevity. There are 5 mistakes we commonly see when it comes to cultivation facility design.

Engineering Greatness: Meet Kenneth Loshelder, PE

Surna is extremely thankful for Kenneth and all that his team of engineers do for our company and for our clients. With over 15-years of experience, he has built a career focused on environmental consistency and energy efficiency. He encourages cultivators to engage with experienced mechanical engineers early-on in the buildout process. We asked Kenneth to answer some questions and lend valuable insight into the construction of cultivation facilities.

HVACD MEP Coordination for Cannabis Cultivation

Effective HVACD coordination is a key component in minimizing frustrating and costly construction delays in cannabis facility buildouts. There are a number of considerations your MEP team address in all stages of the project, from pre-design planning, to commissioning and beyond, in order to provide a comprehensive HVACD coordination effort.
