LED Energy Savings You can expect to see a 50% to 70% decrease in electricity costs when you switch from HPS or MH grow lights to LED grow lights. No Ballasts – No Heat VentingLight Emitting Diodes (LEDs) provide numerous advantages in efficiency and control over a traditional light source such as incandescent, florescent, high pressure sodium, metal halide and high intensity discharge lights. One of the major advantages is not just in the brightness of the LED lights or their low power consumption, but the actual light spectrum can now be controlled in a constructive way such that the photosynthesis of plants can be optimized by providing the exact spectra needed for plant photosynthesis. This is one of the main reasons that LED Grow lights are becoming the preferred technology that professional growers are turning to. No Expensive AccessoriesBallasts, reflectors, fans, heat removal systems…they are expensive and add up very quickly. LED KUSH grow lights eliminate the need for these extra accessories. Plug in and start photosynthesis immediately. Color and Photosynthesis in the Natural World Plants use light to convert starch into energy by the process of photosynthesis. Although a fairly complex chemical process, it is not difficult to see that plants do better in some types of light and not so well in others. This is because during the phases of a plant’s growth and reproductive cycles, the plant requires a different combination of light wavelengths at different periods of the growth and reproductive cycle to develop properly. In nature this variety of wavelengths are present in the sun and surprisingly at different times of the year we get different colored sunlight. You may have noticed that in the summer that the sun looks more orange and the sky has a yellow hue compared to winter when everything looks bluer and colder. This is because our seasons are determined by the fact that our orbit around the sun is elliptical and not circular. This means we are further away from the sun at certain times of the year, dimming its intensity. In the summer the sun is higher in the sky so the sunset takes longer. It is the opposite in the winter, so the red lights associated with the sunset takes up less time and the blue sky dominates the percentage of daylight. Low Heat LED KUSH grow lights emit a small amount of the energy they consume as heat and are safely warm-to-the-touch while operating. This means no more scorched leaves, no more excessive dehydration and better temperature control right above your plants.
