ESA has announced the completion of the first phase of its new 3.6MW solar project in Central Florida. This three-phase solar project is part of ESA’s ongoing effort to provide a decarbonization pathway for businesses and communities across the country.
The project will consist of three 1.2 MW.direct current The system is built step by step. These systems are used to support all of the local cannabis companies’ on-site power needs. Solar power projects can help reduce electricity bills, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create a more reliable source of electricity, and promote clean energy in the region.
The array utilizes a ground mounting system with Terrasmart Glide racks built to provide maximum efficiency and stability.
“We are pleased that the first phase of this new solar project has already been completed near our home base in Central Florida,” said ESA Executive Vice President Justin Vandenbrock. rice field. “Working with local agricultural leaders to promote sustainable energy practices will help us meet their growing energy needs. It will power cannabis facilities, one of the new sources of electricity consumption.”
The second phase of the solar project is expected to be completed by the end of this year, paving the way for even more onsite solar power for cannabis facilities. Solar power can reduce the cost of growing operations, as electricity can be 30% to 50% of the wholesale cost of cannabis production. ESA looks forward to continuing to work with companies and organizations across the country to advance sustainable energy practices and build a better future for all of us.
