Affinor Growers (AFI) has chosen TESLA as the alternative energy provider for its vertical growing operation in Abbotsford, BC.

TESLA’s solar PV system will offset Affinor’s electrical consumption and lower annual operations costs.

In addition to lowering energy costs, TESLA Power Walls will completely support the water irrigation system and ensure continuous power during outages.

Affinor’s alternative energy program is especially important as the company grows across Canada and works toward full environmental, social, and governance compliance.

As demand for fresh food grows around the world, Affinor’s mission is to serve the world with sustainable agricultural technology and growing processes, with no compromises on quality.

Affinor CEO Nick Brusatore commented,

“This vision of sustainability through combined technology is an honour to be part of. Our Abbotsford operation is the culmination of decades of research and technology development.

“I believe we are finally getting to the core and addressing the true economics required for sustainable, automated, mass production of food and plants,” he added.

The system of solar panels and battery storage will be fully integrated with BC Hydro and will be installed by Terratek Energy Solutions, the exclusive supplier of TESLA in British Columbia.

Affinor Growers is a farming technology company that acquires, patents, and commercializes agriculture technologies and vertical farming technology for the indoor controlled environment and outdoor greenhouse agriculture industry in North America.

Affinor Growers (AFI) is up 14.29 per cent and is trading at $0.04 per share as of 10:21 am ET.
