‘Clean Tech’ Firm Building Revolutionary Indoor Farming Lighting, Plant Monitoring, and Data Science Platform
Edmonton, AB, November 20, 2019 — G2V Optics, a fast-growing Edmonton-based firm revolutionizing smart lighting technology around the world, is embarking on several new commercial agricultural partnerships after closing a round of seed financing that raised CA$1.875 million (US$1.4 million).
“Our technologies optimize the nutritional efficiency and chemical content of the crop while reducing the cost and environmental impact of agricultural production,” explained Michael Taschuk, G2V’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Founder. “We are actively seeking additional partnerships with innovative controlled-environment growers to commercially demonstrate the value of this technology for valuable crop families like soft fruits, spices, and medicinal crops.”
G2V produces patented, state-of-the-art grow lights for indoor farming and testing tools for solar-related technologies. The company’s LED-based technology mimics seasons, different geographies and accelerates growth rates, helping to dramatically reduce the overall environmental footprint of a crop, including water usage, by growers.
