SW Chapter September Meeting and Presentation

Join us for the September SW Chapter meeting and featured presentation: 

Indoor Cannabis Production in the Southwest: Energy Efficiency Challenges and Opportunities

With the continued trend toward the legalization of cannabis for medicinal and/or recreational use, indoor cannabis grow operations are on the rise. Utilities are keeping an eye on this growing customer segment for two primary reasons: it brings with it load growth that they will have to support, and it represents an opportunity to promote energy efficiency (and potentially demand management) program offerings to these energy-hungry businesses.
