BCACE is most appreciative for the sponsorship of ‘Energy Management for the Cannabis Industry’ from FortisBC. 

Legalized recreational cannabis use in Canada has led to dramatic shifts in the operations and production of agricultural companies across the nation as several new facilities are being added or planned. Cannabis cultivation is energy intensive, at as much as 6 MWhe per kilogram of final product, according to U.S. figures.
