Changing to LED lighting can save you an average 70% on your energy bills and average payback periods from 6 to 24 months. Long life quality products and easy installations bring maintenance cost to a minimum.
Light emitting diodes, due to their high efficiency and low energy use last for up to 100,000 hours. This means eleven years of continuous lighting or, alternatively, around twenty-two years of half-time operation. In an environment where constant lighting is needed to make sure the plants can grow and flourish properly, lifetime is extremely important and of course, a long lifetime also allows for less frequent maintenance service time and costs.
Last but not least, LED grow lights have the clear advantage in comparison to other lighting methods in that it emits far less heat. This is of crucial importance for plant growth as too much heat can be very damaging to plants, decreasing growth and often leading to decreased life time. With the use of LED technology, far less heat is emitted and instead a higher efficiency of light ensures that the plants receive exactly what they need to grow and blossom.
