PVC Management, developer of the Palo Verde Center in Blythe, CA, has selected Kinsley Energy Systems as the exclusive supplier of combined heat and power (CHP) equipment for the facility.  Soon to begin construction, PVC is the first purpose-built, high-efficiency, low-cost campus for cannabis production.  Kinsley will supply reciprocating-engine CHP systems from TEDOM, a global leader in cogeneration based in the Czech Republic.  The power plant will be built in 4MW increments as the campus expands using the TEDOM Quanto D4000 CHP system.  The centralized power plant will supply the facility with electricity, chilled water for cooling and humidity control, and clean CO2 to enhance plant growth.  When complete, the CHP process will generate as much as 80MW of electric power and 16,000 tons of refrigeration.


Palo Verde Center (PVC) is a 135-acre industrial cannabis facility development. Upon project completion, the center will have more than 2.4 million square feet of space dedicated to cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, and testing. The goal of PVC Management is to make Palo Verde Center the lowest cost, most efficient cannabis business location in the state of California.


In addition to delivering power at lower cost than the electric utility, Tedom CHP provides energy to business owners with a high level of reliability. Frequent brownouts and power outages due to natural disasters are an increasing concern to cannabis cultivators whose livelihood depends on reliable, sustained electrical power.  As wild fires and other sources of stress increasingly threaten electric grid stability in California, onsite generation will allow PVC to operate through any utility outage.  In an environment of increasing cannabis supply and declining prices, only the most efficient, lowest-cost producers are likely to survive. Through a significant decrease in upfront capital costs and low ongoing operating expenses, PVC offers cannabis business owners the opportunity to thrive in an increasingly competitive market.
