LEDs are proven to be more effective than traditional bulbs and this study reinforces this.

According to AgriNews, a study into the use of LED lights in the winter has found that they can significantly reduce greenhouse energy costs without sacrificing yield. The study, carried out by Purdue University found that LED lights produced the same yield – size and number of fruit- as traditional sodium lamps, but done so using 25 per cent less energy. In turn, this also resulted in cheaper energy bills and less green house gases omitted.

Cary Mitchell, professor of horticulture said, ‘This technology could allow US growers to create local jobs that shrink carbon footprints and produce better tasting tomatoes.’

The news comes as no surprise for Simple Lighting Co. who has championed the use of LED lights over traditional types for years. The well established company has highlighted the money saving benefits, energy efficiency and long lasting benefits of LEDs to both commercial and domestic customers.

A spokesperson from the company added, ‘LEDs are proven to be more effective than traditional bulbs and this study reinforces this. Additionally it also demonstrates their efficiency of them in commercial settings such as tomato growing in the winter. We hope that in light of this study more commercial businesses will begin to use LED lights in some way.’
