CEA Equipment Financing | urban-gro

Equipment Financing Solutions for Controlled Environment Agriculture

In Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) facilities, the sophistication, efficiency, and age of your growing equipment and cultivation systems directly impact the productivity of your facility and the quality of your crop yields. Whether you're expanding or upgrading an existing cultivation facility or outfitting a new operation, acquiring the necessary tools and technology can be a significant upfront investment. Understanding your cannabis equipment financing options can help you make an informed decision that will benefit both your facility and your bottom line. Cannabis equipment financing provides a flexible and affordable way to equip your facility with state-of-the-art technology customized to meet the unique needs and goals of your business.

What is Equipment Financing?

Cannabis equipment financing allows you to obtain the cultivation equipment and systems that you need without significant out-of-pocket upfront costs which can negatively impact your cash reserves and cause capital constraints for your business. Instead, you finance the equipment through a structured payment plan over a set period, spreading the cost out over time to make it more manageable. This approach allows you to access the equipment you need to get your product to market quickly with the flexibility to pay back the loan once your business is generating profit. By preserving capital you’re able to balance competing business priorities without settling for less efficient systems that could lead to future operating costs and challenges in the future.

Customized Solutions to Fit Your Business Needs

At urban-gro, we offer customized equipment financing solutions designed specifically for the unique needs of CEA facilities. We understand that every operation is different, with its own set of challenges and goals. That's why our financing plans are tailored to your specific business requirements and budget.

If your new equipment is eligible for energy efficiency rebate incentives from your utility provider or a state or local program, urban-gro may also be able to leverage the expected rebate as part of an attractive equipment financing package.

Whether you're focused on hydroponics, aquaponics, vertical farming, or another form of CEA, our financing options can be customized to match your cash flow and operational needs.
