Mission Critical backup power for Compass Cultivation's medical cannabis growing facility in Taneytown, MD

In August 2016, Maryland Compassionate Care and Wellness LLC, later rebranded as Grassroots Cannabis, won preliminary approval for a grower’s license, processor’s license, and a license to operate a dispensary on a separate premises outside Carroll County.  The company is a multistate operator, involved in the medical cannabis business in Illinois, Ohio, Nevada, California and Pennsylvania in addition to Maryland. Growing and distributing cannabis in Illinois since at least 2015 through the related Windy City Cannabis Club, Grassroots Cannabis is bringing experience and expertise to its Maryland operation.

Construction on the 54,000-square-foot Grassroots facility in Taneytown began in April 2017 and was completed in December 2017.

Curtis Engine supplied and East Coast Electric installed three 500 kW diesel generators set up for parallel operation to provide redundant backup power for the facility.
