Commercial Growers

The application of LED grow lighting in commercial horticulture is beginning to take off, supported by an ever increasing amount of evidence for the effectiveness of LED in growing a large number of different crops.

The challenge that Plessey is addressing with development of its new Hyperion grow light is the commercial return available to growers in terms of growing environment efficiencies, energy savings and better crop yields/ quality. High pressure sodium grow lights have been used for many years by commercial growers and they are reluctant to switch away from this technology without a strong commercial case.

Hyperion grow lights are 1:1 equivalent with existing 600w and 1000w sodium grow lights, making them easy to install and work with. The cost savings delivered by requiring less lights than LED competitors, having lower installation costs and creating less shading make Hyperion a very low total cost LED solution, delivering greater returns to growers.

Case studies

We have successfully installed our range of LED grow lights in a number of key universities and research establishments. The following are an extract of these case studies and highlight the key benefits obtained from implementing the Plessey total solution.
