Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Horticultural Lighting + Tech newsletter for Oct. 2, 2023. As our Mark Halper notes in a story on new horticultural lighting business for Sollum Technologies, “One swallow does not make a summer.” Yet it is encouraging to see some large-scale indoor farming projects benefiting from not only LED lighting to reduce their energy consumption but also the ability to control said lighting in a more responsive and dynamic way to support crops. Furthermore, Fluence has revealed that in-house representatives have helped its customers maximize their investment in horticultural LEDs with rebate and incentive assistance.
Meanwhile, although the cannabis industry has encountered difficulties with policy impacts on financing and energy efficiency incentives, it remains an area with expectations for growth, and so we have several articles on industry education, controlled environment strategy, and LED lighting impact on crop yield for a California grower.
Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
