This is a plug and play business that is ready for immediate growth and offers an attractive quick income opportunity.

The acquisition fits with Power REIT’s sustainable investment strategy of growing in a greenhouse, which has lower costs and a much smaller carbon footprint than growing in industrial premises.

SUSTAINABILITY DECLARATION Power REIT owns properties related to infrastructure assets, including agriculture in a controlled environment (CEA), renewable energy and transportation facilities.

These facilities grow medicinal cannabis, which is recommended for a variety of medical symptoms, including seizures and convulsions, multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, migraines, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Renewable energy assets consist of land and infrastructure related to industrial-scale solar farms. These projects generate electricity without using fossil fuels, thus reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
