Why choose LED plant growth lights

One question that is often asked about LED plant growth lights is: Are they really ready to deal with the golden time of plant growth lights?

The answer is: Get ready, because they have been around for a long time, and they are getting better and better. Continuous development and various trends make LED plant growth lamps the only choice for indoor planting. These include: improved lamp beads, lenses, growing electricity bills, and the enthusiasm of growers for energy efficiency and ease of use. LED plant lights have obvious advantages in the following three aspects:

1. Better illuminant illuminants have always been one of the main reasons hindering the development of the plant lamp market. Until recently, the LED lamp beads that provided the wavelength bands required for plant photosynthesis (especially 660 nm) met the market. Demand Nano is a unit that measures the energy of light and represents the size of a band at each point. The red light at the end of the reddish spectrum emitted by the 660 nm lamp is critical to plant photosynthesis. It's funny that many vendors claim that they are the first to start using a true 660nm manufacturer. At that time, LED plant growth lights did not lack the strength to allow plants to grow. A few years later, the wattage is higher, and the wider spectrum of lamp beads is a new era for plant lights. Compared to previous plant lights, the new generation of plant lights has a significant increase in spectrum and intensity.

2. Secondary Optical Lens The second major breakthrough in LED plant growth lamps is the optical lens. A plastic concentrating lens is placed over the LED lamp bead to enhance the intensity of the light while greatly improving the penetration and distribution of the light. Many organizations are still working on optical lenses and look forward to more innovations.

3 Increasing electricity bills High electricity bills have also greatly spurred growers to switch to more energy-efficient LED plant growth lights. In southern California, our power company SCE announced that they will raise prices every year for the next few years. A 1000-watt HID lamp will work 12 hours a day during the flowering period, and 4.3 million kWh of electricity will be used a year. According to SCE's current highest electricity bill of $0.36 per kilowatt hour, the annual electricity bill is $1,500. And this does not include electricity used to maintain ambient temperature, such as air conditioning fans. LED plant growth lights can halve electricity bills.
