Ten Acre Cannabis Greenhouse Expansion Project Near Completion
Copperstate Farms Management has reached the final phases of the build out and renovation of its greenhouse facility in Snowflake, Arizona. This completes the retrofit of its entire 40-acre greenhouse, expanding the company’s cultivation capabilities and tripling the amount of flower it produces.
“This project is the latest step in our vision to build the largest cannabis greenhouse operation in the U.S. The increase in scale and production capacity will dramatically reduce our indirect fixed costs and make us the most competitive producer in the industry,” stated Co-Founder and Managing Director, Fife Symington.
Copperstate Farms broke ground on January 6th and expects a completion date of early July 2020. Sustainable building initiatives were prioritized throughout the project utilizing the latest cannabis cultivation technologies including a state-of-the-art, Dutch ventilation and climate control system to produce high-quality flower.
“We are very excited to augment our production processes with the latest in greenhouse technologies for managing the environmental stresses we face on a daily basis. Additionally, this further supports our ability to hire approximately 75 new team members from the local community who will oversee this area of operations,” stated CEO Pankaj Talwar.
In addition, Copperstate Farms is converting its planting process to sustainable and reusable pots and installing composting equipment for both soil and plant material on site.
Copperstate Farms is home to one of the largest indoor cannabis facilities in the U.S. with 40 acres under glass and is the top employer in Snowflake. The company currently has 50 medical cannabis strains in development and 50 in production.
Total Energy Group is proud to have been a part of this project.
