Kinsley Energy Systems to Aid in Cannabis Cultivation for PA Options for Wellness

Kinsley Energy Systems have been selected to supply a high-efficiency combined heat and power (CHP) and chilled water system for the Lab Energy Cogeneration Plant by the PA Options for Wellness (PAOFW).  PAOFW is a medical cannabis provider and research company.

The cogeneration plant is fueled by liquified natural gas (LNG) and operates independently from the electric grid. It serves as the sole source of electric power and thermal energy to the PAOFW medical cannabis cultivation facility. Working in collaboration with their Accredited Clinical Research Center, Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), Hershey Medical Center, PAOFW has established research as a primary mission, emphasizing individual patient care, treatment, and outcomes in developing their medicinal cannabis projects.

Kinsley Energy Systems is a value-added equipment and service provider for the highest-quality distributed energy systems. They are expecting to have a full commissioning of the cogeneration system in January of 2022. Their package will consist of four TEDOM cogeneration units, backup boilers, high-efficiency magnetic bearing electric chillers, and closed-circuit cooling towers with associated pumping systems. This design implements built-in redundancy components to reduce energy costs, cust carbon emissions, and ensure cultivation resilience within the facility.

Tom Trite, CEO of PAOFW, said, “We selected Kinsley because they offered competitive cost, valuable technical support during project development and local service throughout the plant’s life.”
