Before he became an electrician, my brother worked as a commercial light salesman.
He sold the lights that building suppliers used in modern sorts of houses and commercial construction projects. He says that the task paid really well each year, although he was consistently tied up out. His boss made him compete with his own kid who was half the man my brother is. Eventually he had enough of the downside environment and joined the nearest electrical union as an apprentice electrician. Although he has risen the ranks to a full foreman with his managers after decades of residential and commercial electrical work, he definitely still works with varying kinds of lighting on a yearly basis. A lot of his job over the past many years involved installing odd kinds of lights for odd purposes. His manager was first contracted recently to do the electrical job for a brand up-to-date commercial grow cultivation center for cannabis. The plant has been legal medically for a few years in our own little state, however last year voters approved recreational marijuana for adults over the wise old age of 21. Companies are investing millions of dollars in up-to-date facilities to get their newest products to market once the law respectfully takes effect. When I asked my brother where most of the money is spent, he told myself and others that it’s the company security systems, the temperature control, and the lighting. Cannabis easily requires bright high performance lights that are far brighter than we’re used to seeing. The lights alone cost a lot of money, however it’s the electricity needed to run them for 12 or more hours each day that starts to add up hastily.
