Welcome to another episode of The Cannabis Reporter Pro Series Podcast sponsored by Blue Mountain Energy, leading experts in energy efficiency and exclusive distributor of the Sierra Fresh Gas-Powered Climate Control Systems serving the cannabis industry.
Indoor cannabis cultivation requires precision climate control, which can be very costly when you factor in heat-intensive grow lights and the size of the canopy. Beyond the cost, energy burdens can present zoning and permitting issues, especially in areas where the local grid is already tapped. In fact, the amount of energy required per square foot of canopy could limit the size of your grow regardless of the size of your facility. Infrastructure upgrades to accommodate the amount of electricity you will need to maximize growing space in a large facility will cost a fortune.
What if you could actually increase the size of your canopy and, at the same time, reduce your HVAC electricity consumption and costs by up to eighty percent? Well, as I’ve learned in the last few weeks, Blue Mountain Energy has made that entirely possible and Eric Riccardi is here to explain how. Be sure to check out Blue Mountain Energy’s booth at MJBizCon in Las Vegas. Eric will be there and happy to answer questions about their remarkable technology.
Eric Riccardi has been working in all aspects of the HVAC/R industry, Research and Development of gas technology for the past 25 years and with Blue Mountain Energy and its previous group of companies, (IntelliChoice Energy, Team Consulting) for 20 years. In addition to being one of the development team, Eric serves as Vice President of Sales for Blue Mountain Energy, a manufacturer, research and development group, and exclusive manufacturer’s representative and service provider of Sierra and NextAire Gas Heat Pumps and associated technology. The past 15 years he has been primarily focused on gas heat pump technology and is factory trained and certified as a consulting engineer by NextAire, AISIN and Daikin. Eric is also currently an instructor at the College of Southern Nevada on the subject of Gas Heat Pump Technology.
