Skiers and snowboarders rejoice as the fresh snow evokes dreams of carving down the mountain.

Last week, I had a sit down with Andrew Breiter-Wu, President of Breiter Planet Properties. I asked him a few questions about himself and the company, and got to know more about his story.

It’s great to be in the action.” In the solar world, Andrew is definitely “In the action”.

Company creates a more sustainable growing model it calls greendoor™, uniting renewable, solar energy with the water-efficiency of indoor growing

 

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cementing its role as an industry trailblazer, Canndescent™ has completed the cannabis industry’s first, commercial-scale solar project, powering its indoor production facility in Desert Hot Springs, CA. Delivering onsite, renewable energy, the 282.6 kilowatt system uses 734 solar modules on seven different carport structures to energize the company’s historic cannabis production facility, which also earned attention in 2016 as California’s first municipally permitted operation. The state-of-the-art, clean energy system offsets as much carbon annually as a 430-acre forest and reduces annual atmospheric carbon emissions by 365 metric tons (per NREL and EPA estimates).
