LAWRENCE, MI – Using energy efficient materials earned a marijuana grow facility a nearly $850,000 rebate.

305 Farms finished building a 44,000-square-foot building in March in Lawrence’s industrial park. It’s part of a plan to create space to grow 80,000 marijuana plants in 350,000 square feet of growing and processing space.

Consumers Energy gave a $849,023 rebate Tuesday, June 7, for the use of energy efficient equipment, a news release from 305 Farms said.

“The rebate is one of the largest rebates issued by Consumers Energy to a company in the cannabis industry and is only for the first building at the huge campus,” the release said. “305 Farms anticipates further refunds as the campus grows.”
 
305 Farms used things like high efficiency lights, tankless water heaters and high efficiency HVAC, CEO Matt Peon said.

There are thousands of lights in the cultivation rooms, and the high efficiency lights results in 25% power saving, Peon said.

 

As 305 Farms continues building two additional facilities they plan to continue using high efficiency products, Peon said.

“I definitely think that there’s additional opportunity on the next building and third building to not only get a higher rebate, but also to kind of just raise the bar in terms of how can we position ourselves to be competitive for the future,” he said.

At least 200 people will be employed by 305 Farms when construction is complete.
