07 May Rolling Stone Magazine & The Importance of Growing Green
Rolling Stone reports on how Eco Firma Farms is successfully growing cannabis with Fluence LED grow lights, and how the grower is being commended by the Resource Innovation Institute for its energy efficient best practices in cannabis growing.
Eco Firma Farms uses Fluence SPYDRx PLUS LED grow lights to greatly increase their energy efficiency. The grower calculates their energy savings to be 388,800 kWh, which is enough energy to power 36 homes for an entire year.* Not only that, but their farm is 100 percent powered by clean wind energy and working towards being 100 percent carbon neutral.
Fluence is proud to be working with Eco Firma Farms and all of our customers in pursuit of a better way to produce sustainable, high-quality crops. We are excited to see their story featured and corporations like Rolling Stone taking interest in how Eco Firma Farms is using less resources to grow more.
Congratulations to Jesse and the EFF team!
