Fluence Shines Light on MedMen Mustang: State-of-the-Art Cannabis Greenhouse


AUSTIN, Texas, April 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ – Fluence Bioengineering, Inc. today announced that MedMen, a leading U.S. cannabis company, has deployed Fluence VYPRx PLUS horticulture lighting solutions in the company’s new cannabis greenhouse. With 100 percent of its supplemental lighting coming from state-of-the-art horticulture LED technology, MedMen can consistently deliver high-quality cannabis year-round, while reducing operating costs and energy consumption when compared to traditional high-pressure sodium (HPS) lighting systems. “We’ve been working closely with Fluence over the past few years on advancing cannabis cultivation, and we’re setting the standard for the industry by deploying Fluence LED solutions at the nation’s most high-tech cannabis factory. With Fluence, we’re avoiding seasonal variations in production while achieving the lowest operating cost and being environmentally sustainable,” said Andrew Modlin, President and Co-Founder, MedMen. The Fluence VYPRx PLUS LED solutions at MedMen Mustang will deliver an average photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) up to 500 µmol/m2/s to supplement sunlight throughout the year. By providing such high light intensities with minimal radiant heat, MedMen is able to mitigate lower yields and quality at times of reduced sunlight and instead deliver a more consistent, higher-quality crop year-round.
