Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Horticultural Lighting + Tech newsletter for Sept. 11, 2023. The past year has been relatively tough on horticultural lighting providers and controlled environment agriculture (CEA) operators alike, with inflation concerns and higher energy costs pushing growers’ focus elsewhere. Yet energy efficiency programs and utility incentives are still available to help offset the cost of installing more advanced equipment. Horticultural specialist Fluence says it has helped customers collect more than $26 million through its in-house rebate administration program, which can then be invested back into their businesses.

Still, bright spots on the horticultural horizon include new business for Sollum and new luminaires from P.L. Light Systems, as well as an enormous Colorado hydroponic greenhouse project covered by our Endeavor Business Media colleagues at Food Processing, demonstrating that sustainability improvements enabled by technology continue to march across the agricultural sector.
