Tesla Energy, through its Tesla Power Walls Solution will power Affinor Growers’ operations in Vancouver, British Columbia; which focus on vertical farming technologies to grow fruits, vegetables and cannabis.
Firstly, Affinor Growers was the one who chose Tesla as its supplier for the solar system, in order to offset electrical consumption; and also lowering operations costs throughout the year.
Secondly, the company’s 15,000 sq ft greenhouse vertical farming site in the region is scheduled for lettuce and strawberry production this summer. It is also waiting for a license from Health Canada for cannabis micro cultivation, within a walled off section of the greenhouse.
Thirdly, Tesla Power Walls will provide the electricity for the greenhouse vertical farm; and also with the water irrigation system; it will continuous power during outages so watering cycles will not fail and crop loss risk is minimized.
Moreover, the choosing of Tesla energy as the power provider came as the company continues to grow across Canada; and as it works toward full ESG compliance. The company is indeed feeding British Columbia with automated vertical farming technology.
