Legal Marijuana: Not So Green?

Working with utility energy efficiency programs can sometimes be complicated for these businesses because the product they product remains illegal on a federal level. This panel will explore the energy use challenges of legalized marijuana along with some of the solutions that entrepreneurs in this space are creating.
