LIGHTING FOR YOUR CULTIVATION ENVIRONMENT

urban-gro’s experience with warehouse and greenhouse lighting strategies helps you to maximize your space and reduce your lighting count. .

Cannabis Lighting Process

Every light is designed with a different purpose in mind. There are different lights for indoor warehouse facilities where the lighting system provides 100% of the available light for cannabis growth versus supplemental lighting for greenhouses where the key is to measure how much light is actually delivered by the sun on a daily bases, which changes throughout the year, and then supplement it with light fixtures that will not create shadowing during hours of sunlight and adjust to reach the optimal collective light levels. Then there are lights designed for the different needs from cloning, the veg stage and the bloom stage.

Given the important relationship between light conversion and the growth of the cannabis plan, urban-gro guarantees the light levels in our design plans and lighting products.

Uniformity is a key metric that can affect every aspect of growing. Uniform Light means more uniform growth which leads to higher yield.

Our Process to Cultivation Lighting

urban-gro lighting design and products help maximize the yields and profitability of new and existing cultivation facilities.

urban-gro prepares a free light plan to ensure that light uniformity and light levels are adequate for your crop. Our professionally engineered plans (in conjunction with PL products) guarantee light levels measured in umol.

As a commercial cannabis grower, you require the best lighting solutions to match your situation and specific set of challenges and opportunities.

Your needs are a complex mix of technical and financial considerations that include available power or the need to upgrade, size of facility and square footage available for crop, accessibility to crop for care, height between crop and fixture, upfront capital outlay, ongoing costs for electricity, production goals, and maintenance costs and usable life of lighting systems.

Maximizing Efficiency

Efficiency is key – Don’t waste light

The lowest lighting system costs are realized when an efficient fixture is paired with canopy photon capture.

Light Choice and Reflectors

In addition to the choice of light, the correct use of reflectors can benefit efficiency.

urban-gro supplies a large range of reflectors and fixtures. Each reflector has been developed to provide an optimum light distribution for cannabis crops. Reflectors are used to ensure that the light penetrates deeper into the crop in the most efficient way possible. Each of the reflectors has its own specific properties and associated applications. All the reflectors have a very high performance and are easily removed from the fixtures for efficient cleaning and changing.

For example, Asymmetric reflectors allow for light to be directed only in the direction it is needed, thereby reducing waste on walls, pathways, etc. PL has different reflectors for different crops, and also for different building scenarios.

 

Assessing Needs

urban-gro lighting design and products help maximize the yields and profitability of new and existing cultivation facilities.

By asking and answering the four essential questions, together we are on our way to providing a complimentary lighting design plan and lighting products to improve your grow, maximize your yield and get the most value from your investment in both the lighting system and the associated costs for electrical power and impact on the power grid.

The ultimate goal is to evaluate the initial capital cost of fixtures per photon delivered. We do this by asking the four essential questions:

  • 1

    What is the efficiency of the fixture? (measured in umoles/watt)

  • 2

    Is the spectrum correct for the stage of growth?

  • 3

    What is the intensity you are targeting for each stage of growth?

  • 4

    What is the capital cost per photon delivered to the plant canopy?
