PowerGrow is pleased to announce the company is siting our technology team to an Opportunity Zone in Colorado. Our new office location is near the Sustainable Innovation Lab at Colorado (SILC). PowerGrow's software and agtech team will work closely with the SILC group to share knowledge and partner in the development of sustainable agriculture technologies and processes.
PowerGrow is also in active discussions with several other Colorado advanced industries companies to explore and formalize partnership opportunities.
The company is also working with several local produce growers as we plan to lock down rural land in an Opportunity Zone near Denver, to build state of the art, renewable-powered controlled growing facilities. These facilities will turn underutilized land, with very limited water rights into optimal farm land to grow healthy, local produce year round.
Our new office location is at 4845 Pearl East Circle, Boulder, CO 80301. Feel free to stop by and visit with us. We look forward to seeing you soon.

PowerGrow and ACTS Partner to Build Greenhouses for Veterans
PowerGrow and ACTS Freedom Farms have signed a Letter of Intent to develop renewable powered, high-tech greenhouses that will employ Veterans who have exited our Armed Forces. ACTS Freedom Farms will own and operate the farms with local Veteran Owner/Operators.
The master planned facilities will provide over 120 permanent, high-skilled, high-paying jobs for the Veterans. Ultimately each site will expand to over 25 acres of renewable powered, high-tech glass greenhouses.
PowerGrow has already established a partnership with the University of Arizona's Controlled Environment Agriculture Center; who will provide a complete education curriculum to help the Veterans rapidly learn how to grow produce indoors.ACTS Freedom Farms will provide a Master Grower that is extensive high-tech glass greenhouse growing experience, for each facility.
