Other Comments:

Boulder County approved and allowed the cannabis industry to be part of the legal business community in unincorporated Boulder County per the 2013-102 Resolution. However, because of the county¡¯s sustainability and climate action goals, the Boulder County marijuana license requirements require the industry to offset its impacts by the following; cultivation facilitates must report energy use and offset the electricity used above a ¡°baseline consumption value¡± (per the county calculations). More information can be found in Resolution 2014-41 . Offsetting the electricity use is done in one of three ways, yet barriers persist, so most pay into the Energy Impact Offset Fund (EIOF).

PROPOSAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. Purpose/Background
Boulder County approved and allowed the cannabis industry to be part of the legal business
community in unincorporated Boulder County per the 2013-102 Resolution. However,
because of the county’s sustainability and climate action goals, the Boulder County
marijuana license requirements require the industry to offset its impacts by the following;
cultivation facilitates must report energy use and offset the electricity used above a
“baseline consumption value” (per the county calculations). More information can be found
in Resolution 2014-41. Offsetting the electricity use is done in one of three ways, yet
barriers persist, so most pay into the Energy Impact Offset Fund (EIOF).
The offset fund dollars are spent on projects which offset the high energy intensity of
cannabis cultivation. More specifically the county and its EIOF committee have focused
expenditures of the fund to assist the cultivation community in understanding and reducing
their energy demand. This project’s objectives include:
1. Conduct assessments to provide Boulder County cultivators with best energy efficiency
practices through behaviors, tactics, and equipment.
2. Help the county better understand the landscape of the licensed cultivation facilities’
efficiency opportunities, barriers, and challenges to operating at their optimal
performance.
