is a free energy, water and waste benchmarking tool
provided by the non-profit Resource Innovation Institute.
“As we take the lessons learned from our first cultivation site, Eco Firma Farms, and apply them to a large and growing network of cultivation assets across multiple states and countries, the PowerScore is the only tool that enables me to keep a handle on the relative performance of my portfolio. It’s essential for profitability tracking.”
Jesse Peters, Mantis Growth Investments
The Cannabis PowerScore is specified by the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission as an approved form and manner for reporting energy and water performance. Massachusetts Dept. of Energy Resources funded RII to upgrade the PowerScore to serve the Commonwealth’s interests in protecting natural resources.

RII recently launched a Utility Working Group, in partnership with leading utilities and their implementation partners. The group is determining best practices on a number of issues, including how to identify and evaluate reliable aggregate data. The Cannabis PowerScore is being contemplated as a tool for understanding energy use in cultivation and extraction facilities, verifying the savings potential of technologies and supporting outreach to cultivation customers.
“As an architect serving a range of indoor cultivation clients growing cannabis, hemp and produce, we look to the PowerScore to help our customers pinpoint opportunities for saving energy and maximizing profit.”
Brian Anderson, Anderson Porter Design
The Cannabis PowerScore is a brief survey that asks questions about the energy, water and waste practices at your facility, whatever your cultivation approach. It provides a measure of your operation’s resource efficiency relative to other facilities like yours, providing an indicator of the competitiveness of your grow environment and tips on improving profitability.
The PowerScore is a free service of Resource Innovation Institute, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to advance a resource efficient cannabis future.Learn More
