In planning the build out of the facility our goal was to centralize as many of the services as possible to make use of economies of scale And maximize efficiencies. Below is a list of some the services to be provided:
1) Centralized condenser water: This will be provided and metered to each space in the building, allowing the use of water cooled wet bulb HVAC units. This system is a closed loop system Allowing for HVAC energy savings of up to 35%.
2) Centralized C02: The benefit to centralized C02 is that it can be mixed evenly with the closed loop air supply providing an optimum grow environment. Tenant has full control over adjusting the C02. There will be built in safety controls to to prevent the use of too much C02.
3) Electrical: Each rental space will have access to the building’s switch gears to pull power from. Each grower will have access to 800 amps of 480 3 phase power with the ability to request more power if needed. Processors will have access to 200 amps of 3 phase power with the ability to request more power if needed. Power will be sub-metered along with extensive reporting. This reporting will assist the grow to optimize electrical use.
4) Solar: Our future plans include installing a 1.4 megawatt solar array on the roof to help offset the large amount of power that this site will be consuming.
