We’re pleased to help growers upgrade their clunkers to smart lights that quickly pay them back many them back, many times over, year after year.
Novato, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
LumiGrow, Inc. (http://www.lumigrow.com), the market and technology leader in smart horticultural lighting, today announced a Cash for Clunkers program. Through the new program, commercial growers receive a $150 cash rebate for each high intensity discharge (HID) greenhouse light fixture they replace with a LumiGrow LED luminaire.
The cash rebate program presents a win-win scenario for growers and the environment. Growers gain a financial incentive for recycling HID greenhouse lights in working order or not. Fixtures are sent to a recycling facility certified to safely dispose of the hazardous materials found in HID lighting. Fixture scrap metal is recycled.
To date, over 1,200 growers worldwide have made the switch from conventional lighting to LumiGrow LED luminaires to improve crop health, productivity and uniformity while they reduce operating costs. Unlike the broad-spectrum HID lights historically used in greenhouses, LumiGrow LED luminaires emit only those portions of the light spectrum that trigger healthy plant responses. Growers reduce their lighting-related energy consumption and costs by 40 percent or more.
Around the world, LumiGrow solution customers annually save an estimated 7.5 thousand megawatt hours, prevent the emission of more than 10 million tons of carbon dioxide, and return millions of dollars to their bottom lines. Additionally, RoHS-compliant LumiGrow LED fixtures are lead- and mercury-free.
“A pile of broken-down HID lights is an all-too-common sight at greenhouse facilities,” said Neil Coppinger, vice president of sales, LumiGrow. He added, “We’re pleased to help growers upgrade these clunkers to smart lights that quickly pay them back many times over, year after year.”
The LumiGrow Cash for Clunkers program expires on May 31, 2013. For program details, please visit http://www.lumigrow.com/cash.
