At this point, it's economically and environmentally essential to use less energy and there are ways to make it happen!

1. Growers can move production outdoors or into greenhouses. However, it's important to note that this depends on environmental conditions, local laws prohibiting outdoor growing, and the risks of using pesticides to protect outdoor marijuana.

2. Installing energy efficient light bulbs. Instead of relying on high-intensity discharge lamps switch to uniquely designed LED lights and induction lights which use magnets to transmit electricity.

3. Evaluating and analyzing energy by installing smart meters to determine where the most energy is being expended.

4. Grow room air filtration scrubs air and removes contaminants. The buildup that settles into dehumidifiers and air conditioning systems makes equipment work harder and requires frequent filter changes. Grow room air scrubbers help prolong HVAC filter life and allow for machinery to run as efficiently as possible.
