Renewable Energy and Power (OTC:RBNW, or “REAP”), announced that the company has bid to provide both lighting and power for a large licensed cannabis growing facility to be located in Monterey County, California.
The company’s divisions of LED Lites USA (http://www.ledlitesusa.com), Solar Hybrid Energy (http://www.sol-hy.com), Power Stac (http://www.powerstac.com and NetZeroFarms (http://www.netzerofarms.com), together offer a complete package for commercial growing enterprises.
LED Lites USA will install its state-of-the-art, computer-controlled high-power LED grow lights which offer full spectrum programmable wavelengths for healthier plants and increased harvest cycles.
Sol-Hy’s solar-powered thin-film panels generate and store energy using all light frequencies except those used by plants in photosynthesis. This produces full solar power while leaving the maximum possible flow of light used by the plants for growth.
Excess power provided by the solar panels will be stored to provide nighttime power through the use of the company’s Power Stac® vanadium redox large scale energy storage system which is superior to lithium-ion as the electrolyte isn’t consumed or degraded through repeated charge and discharge cycles, extending life and minimizing maintenance. And as it uses a single electrolyte, there is no danger of cross-contamination.
“The companies expertise in both lighting and power allows us to offer a complete package to commercial growing projects,” noted REAP CEO Donald MacIntyre. “The commercial cannabis market is increasing at such a rate that it will offer continuing opportunities. Another market we’re enthused about is urban farming located in discontinued facilities in urban areas. Our NetZeroFarms division offers rooftop greenhouses that we believe will be another expanding market for our lighting and power products.”
