SOLAR & SUSTAINABILITY
UNITING RENEWABLE SOLAR ENERGY WITH WATER-EFFICIENCY
In 2019, Canndescent completed the cannabis industry’s first, commercial-scale solar project, powering our historic indoor production facility in Desert Hot Springs, CA with renewable solar energy.
EXPERIENCE THE WORLD’S FIRST COMMERCIAL SCALE SOLAR PROJECT IN CANNABIS
EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCTS MEET EXCEPTIONAL PRACTICES
Cultivating indoors with solar power, Canndescent now marries the water efficiency associated with indoor hydroponic cultivation with the energy efficiency found in other forms of cultivation. Historically, the cannabis industry has had to choose between indoor, outdoor, and greenhouse approaches. With the first-of-its-kind solar project, we have now pioneered a fourth choice – GREENDOOR – uniting water efficiency, energy efficiency, and pesticide-free growing in an indoor format.
Within the greendoor model, Canndescent also focuses on a number of environmentally friendly practices.
CANNDESCENT’S ENVIRO-FRIENDLY PRACTICES
We utilize an integrated pest management system, using all natural non-pesticide practices
We leverage products to aid in irrigation efficiency
We use a computerized hydroponic water system to greatly reduce water usage
We harness natural energy from the 4000+ windmills in Palm Springs (an area that is almost 100% renewable)
We experiment with LED lighting options for reduction in energy usage
