LRC Study Looks at LED Horticultural Lighting System Performance

The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, published a new report on the energy and economic performance of LED horticultural luminaires. The research team found that for a given growing area, energy savings were possible with some of the tested LED horticultural luminaires compared to the tested high-pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH) horticultural luminaires, when meeting the same photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) criterion, but there
