Lemnis-Oreon-LEDThe Dutch energy requirement for greenhouse lighting totals the combined output of two coal-fired power plant but a solution from Lemnis Lighting is said to reduce this energy bill by up to 90% over incandescent solutions. Crops only require some of the full light spectrum to grow optimally and Lemnis Oreon, the company’s LED lighting solution for glasshouse horticulture, produces those wavelengths only. Optimal directional characteristics direct the light at the crop, not at the ceiling, saving energy and reducing light pollution. The solution is said to save 30 – 35% energy over SON-T lighting and up to 90% over incandescent solutions. It does not generate unwanted heat which would affect glass house climate management systems. This optimises temperature management and the greenhouse requires less ventilation.
