Pure Harvest Corporate's portfolio company, DC Energy Group has completed multiple successful harvests in the initial testing of its LED light fixtures for cannabis cultivation in state-licensed facilities located in Denver, Colorado. "The reported results have been favorable in each harvest to date, and it is believed that production will continue to improve as testing continues," Pure Harvest team points out.
"The positive test results are a reflection of the advances in LED technology in agricultural applications and the efficacy of DC Energy’s commercial fixtures for cannabis cultivation," they continue. "These LED fixtures are a critical component of DC Energy’s Infinergy enterprise-level energy management system and these early test results demonstrate that LED fixtures can compete with traditional, high-pressure sodium lights. As commercial tests continue to generate harvest data, DC Energy will continue to monitor the results and attempt to prove the potential of intelligently managed energy solutions that include solar power, battery storage systems, and other highly efficient alternative energy sources. DC Energy is encouraged by this initial success and believes these tests are a significant step towards reducing the environmental impact of the cannabis industry."
"DC Energy’s Infinergy System allows cannabis growers to dramatically reduce their carbon footprint by utilizing solar energy, battery storage, and other tightly integrated efficient energy options to power their lighting fixtures as well as other traditional AC power-intensive systems. The Infinergy™ System combines cutting edge energy monitoring and control technology with proven agricultural LED fixtures specifically designed to maximize cannabis production. DC Energy management believes that this combination of synergistic technologies represents a paradigm shift in agricultural lighting and overall energy management."
“We are excited to see the results from these initial harvests and are optimistic that we can minimize the carbon footprint associated with indoor cannabis cultivation with this technology,” said David Lindsey, President and Chief Technology Officer. “As the industry continues to grow, we are going to need to look past the existing electrical grid to power cannabis production. These tests are showing that the opportunity to intelligently manage energy usage including, among other options, the combination of solar power and LED lighting is a viable alternative to the current, energy-intensive state of cannabis cultivation.”
