As a commercial cannabis facility manager, you rely on the latest technology to maximize facility output while minimizing labor, time and costs. Yet these innovative ag-tech solutions – from LED-based lighting to automated irrigation - all have a critical flaw: they’re powered by primitive electricity developed in the 1800s.
Digital Electricity™ is purpose-built for today’s high-tech facility and the future of cannabis production. With combined breakthroughs in power and datadistribution, you now have the flexibility, control, safety, security and efficiency to build, upgrade and manage the best cultivation facility possible.
VoltServer is currently looking to work with a select number of cannabis producers who want to lead the digital transformation of controlled-environment agriculture. Sign up to learn more and receive our monthly newsletter featuring the latest research and technology in indoor agriculture.
Compared to conventional AC and DC power distribution, Digital Electricity™ significantly reduces (and in some cases eliminates) the cost, time and complexity of building, retrofitting and managing a cannabis production facility.
Typical results include:
While urban farming has many benefits, it also has many challenges. One of which is limited access to necessary power.
For producers with a LPD regulatory requirement, Digital Electricity™ can deliver double the power per square foot while maintaining compliance.
Digital Electricity™ operates at 345V, yet provides protection against shock and fire using over 500 safety checks every second.
The check points protect against human injury, equipment failure, poor connections, phantom loads and electrical fires.
The initial focus of our technology is to improve crop production in vertical farms by optimizing high voltage electricity with high intensity lighting.
Our platform gives you precise control over photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) up to 2,000 µmol/m2/s, photoacclimation and photoperiod with real-time monitoring and alerts by room, row, tier, table, individual light and strain.
Vertical farming (and its many benefits compared to conventional farming) is only viable if profitable.
Our decision to focus initially on high-intensity lighting is based on the latest academic research and customer trials showing a 40% average increase in crop yield with a 100% increase in PPFD, and a 10% increase in energy efficiency compared to conventional electricity1.

Our platform is developing alongside new technologies and insights into genetics, microclimates, beneficial microorganisms, photobiology and secondary metabolites.
Digital Electricity™ will continue to expand how you interact with your crop, your environment, your facility and ultimately with your customers.
Digital Electricity™ is currently deployed across hundreds of hospitals, airports, hotels, office buildings and sporting venues (including every Super Bowl since 2018).
Our customers and installation partners include AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and Marriot Corp. In addition, VoltServer recently completed a remote wireless “Supercell” broadband pilot with Facebook.
