LED grow lights have become more efficient than their metal halide (MH) and high pressure sodium (HPS) competitors which could lead to massive energy savings. For example, the Telos 0008 draws 240W and has the equivalent light output of a 315W ceramic MH and a 400W HPS, saving up to 40% of energy.
Constantly replacing costly bulbs and reflectors is not an issue with an LED grow light. High power LEDs from CREE, like those in the LED fixtures on sale at Grow Power, have been tested to last 85,000 hours at over 90% output (that's almost 10 years!) and there is no need for a replacement reflector thanks to our unique optics.
Better for Plants
LED grow lights emit far less infrared radiation than traditional grow lighting, which can reduce heat stress and damage. Also a tailored spectrum is easier to produce with LEDs ensuring your plants get the light they need.
