The company’s specialty is the assimilation of smart-energy technologies and solutions for North American commercial and industrial property owners and operators.

As a result, the company’s customers have more control over energy use (http://cnw.fm/eT4LU).
With a focus on providing energy-efficiency assistance, Kontrol Energy is entering the cannabis vertical sector. The goal of its cannabis solutions is to provide energy efficiency and emission-compliance solutions to licensed producers.
