Cannabis

The cannabis industry is one of the most energy-intensive sectors in the U.S. – driven by 24-hour indoor lighting, heating, cooling, and ventilation systems at ever-expanding cultivation and processing facilities. Cannabis-grow operations need effective energy strategies to ensure long-term success.

Fueling The Growing Demand

Cannabis facilities share similar energy load profiles to those of hospitals and data centers. All use massive amounts of energy, and for each, a prolonged power outage can prove disastrous. Gotham 360 has extensive experience working on life-critical energy projects, where loss of power is not an option.

Through the deployment of clean, on-site power generation – Combined Heat & Power (CHP), Fuel Cells, and PV Solar + Battery – cannabis companies are enjoying new Value Stacked revenue streams.

Our unique blend of technologies "Stack Up" multiple benefits and value streams – delivering continuity of business, increased crop yields and margins, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and significantly lower operational costs:

  • Clean, Secure, On-site Power Generation & Battery Storage Solutions
  • Design & Deployment of Full Turnkey, Environmentally-Controlled Cannabis Grow Systems – Power, Climate, Air & Automation
  • Sustainable Energy Procurement Strategies in Deregulated Markets
  • LED Lighting, HVAC and Building Automation Upgrades & Retrofits
  • Complete Project Financing & Performance-Based Agreements

A study published by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory revealed that legalized indoor cannabis-grow operations already account for 1% of total electricity use in the U.S., at a cost of $6 billion per year. Annually, such consumption produces 15 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2), equal to that of three million automobiles, on average.


Generate and store your own electricity on site – cheaper than you can buy it from the utility. Flip a swich and disconnect your facility from the grid, in case of a power outage. Your operations keep running – while your competitors are left in the dark. That's Resiliency 360.
