As you fill out the PowerScore, you’ll gain a wealth of insights about your operational fitness. Get started on your efficiency journey by following these three easy steps.
The Cannabis PowerScore is a free benchmarking tool provided by the non-profit Resource Innovation Institute.
The purpose of the brief, confidential survey is to empower cultivators and operators to understand and track how they use energy, and gain insight into their competitive position.
Our goal is to help operators of all sizes and methods make confident decisions that result in cutting their energy expense and carbon footprint.
The Cannabis PowerScore was designed with cultivators for cultivators. Hundreds of farms have engaged with the PowerScore through their participation in Cultivation Classic and The Emerald Cup’s Regenerative Cannabis Farm Award.
