Energy conservation company GreenLight, LLC, providing specialized Utility Bill Audit services to the cannabis industry, announced today that it secured more than $85,000 in utility refunds for Maryland’s Kind Therapeutics USA. "The reimbursements stemmed from oversights regarding obscure local laws and how they are applied to utility billing structures & classifications," they say.
GreenLight specializes in the assessment, strategy, comprehensive installation and facilitation of rebates and incentives related to energy efficiency. Licensed in 2017 and based in Hagerstown, Kind Therapeutics USA is a Maryland cannabis wholesale cultivator employing more than 80 people, and is GreenLight’s first cannabis client in Maryland. The indoor cultivation site totals approximately 180,000 square feet, including 50,000 square feet of canopy, and a laboratory.
“Working with GreenLight to identify and secure these refunds was a smooth process. They worked remotely without interruption to our normal business operations and delivered exceptional results,” said Dr. Susan Zimmerman, CEO at Kind Therapeutics. “Offering their utility bill auditing service on a contingency basis made it an easy decision to pursue this opportunity.”
Kind Therapeutics is one of three Maryland cannabis cultivators that GreenLight currently services. Recently GreenLight announced securing reimbursements for their 50th cannabis client across the country. Isaac Liebes, Director of Cannabis Consulting at GreenLight, says their staff works directly with any utility company or municipal utility provider, to secure historical billing data so they can complete a thorough audit without adding to their client’s workload.
“This exciting result is a testament to Kind Therapeutics being conscious operators and proactively seeking opportunities to reduce unnecessary expenses without negatively impacting their products,” added Isaac. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to help the cannabis industry with this highly specialized niche service.”
