Do you use CO2 in your operation today -- if so, how much and what do you pay for it? What are your thoughts in CO2 usage in indoor farms?

We do not use CO2 in Abbotsford. We’ve only used fresh air intake however, the Alberta facility with fresh bay will utilize the exhaust from the Cogen units to scrub for CO2 and carbon credits.

Energy is a big topic in indoor farming right now. How much do you pay for electricity (kWh)? Is it mainly from the grid or renewables?

The 860,000 square-foot facility in Alberta will be run with full Cogen for heat and electricity, with the potential of geothermal through Novis Earth, also working with fresh bay on site.
