We had a great session for NewCO Boulder today. With a packed room, we discussed the cannabis industry and what Surna is doing to create a more energy efficient growing environment.

NewCo is designed to “celebrate the spirit of innovation” that exists within many companies. Through their format, participants are able to visit companies at their office and learn more about what makes them innovative and unique.

For this inaugural event, Surna welcomed Boulderites to our office for a discussion about cannabis and what makes Surna a “NewCo” by being at the forefront of innovation within the cannabis industry. After the presentation, there was a lively discussion about the potential of the cannabis market and where it could be in the next few years.

Topics we touched upon included: why water chilled cooling is more efficient than HVAC (it has to do with the heat retention properties of water), the potentials of industrial hemp (they are far-reaching and will have lasting effects on industries like automobiles and high-tech) and Surna’s role as an innovator within the cannabis industry going forward (we have lots of big ideas and are working towards making them a reality).

Additionally, we talked about the far-reaching effects of cannabis in Colorado. The size and scope of this industry are working to create a discussion about cannabis legalization among people of all varieties, including those that may not be interested in cannabis otherwise. The cannabis industry is quickly growing and garnering attention along the way. With the potential to eclipse the wine market1 in total sales2 in a relatively short amount of time, people are interested in creating a discussion around cannabis.

To close out the session, we took participants on a tour of Surna’s facility where they were able to see our engineers hard at work and visit our manufacturing warehouse to see how our chillers are made.

We were honored by the number of people who chose to attend the Surna session. Thanks for making NewCO Boulder’s first year such a hit for us.
