A discussion around proposed California energy code with huge cannabis industry implications  

California's Energy Commission is considering changes to its 2022 Energy Code and is regulating horticultural energy use for the first time. The state is currently proposing standards that would basically require LED lighting, among other potentially burdensome standards.

Please join us for a discussion on what this would mean for the industry, and hear from the state on the details and the reasoning behind the proposal. Come have your voices be heard!

Date: Monday, August 3rd – 5:15pm to 6:30pm

Location: Zoom - Registration required at 


Brent Buhrman (CVCAN President) and/or Quentin Dusastre (CVCAN Executive Director)


Kyle Booth - Energy Solutions: Kyle represents the state and will explain the proposed new energy code with a detailed slide presentation.

Bob Gunn - Seinergy: Bob will speak on the economic impacts this could have on our industry as a whole but also on how currently available rebates/incentives for energy-saving technologies could be impacted.

Eric Kerker – iluminar Inc.: Lighting technology experts. Will speak on current and developing lighting technologies, their cost, efficiency, shelf life, and so on.

Adam Yudka – Gold Flora: Cultivation experts. Will speak on transitioning from HID to LED, the problems and challenges that come with that, the pros & cons of each, and the feasibility to fully transition for large scale operation.

Jonatan Cvetko – UCBA Jonathan will use his extensive knowledge to speak on certain key points of this new energy code and it's possible impacts on our industry.
