When switching to our Gen 1 luminaries from traditional HPS systems, you can expect a payback by year 5. While with standard LED manufacturers, payback is not expected even after 20 years.

Wider Crop Variety
While some luminaries provide full spectrum at the expense of electrical efficiency , others claim “full spectrum” but in reality they only provide 2 to 3 wavelengths from the visible spectrum. Our luminaries are able to achieve the full spectrum without compromising on the electrical efficiency. This means a wide variety of crops can be grown profitably indoor.
Example of crops that can be grown with our system:
– Leafy greens
Our hardware/software combination have the ability to control and monitor for all lighting factors that go into growth optimization. With our software spectrum, lighting zones and photo-periods can be automatically or manually managed. Sensors also provide insight into growth rate, disease onsets, resource consumption etc.
