1000 Watt HPS
If you’re looking for the highest possible efficiency for your greenhouse you may want to do a bit of research on high-pressure sodium bulbs. 1000 Watt HPS bulbs could make of giant difference in your greenhouse as far as your growth yield and operating costs. High-pressure sodium is currently one of the most efficient lighting systems that you can use in a greenhouse. Although the cost of replacement can be somewhat expensive for some the energy savings and change in your products will be enough for you to be able to rationalize the cost of switching over your ballasts or bulbs to high-pressure sodium.
A 1000 Watt HPS bulb will be able to produce far more lumens and a much lower cost than a metal halide bulb or any other form of high intensity grow light sunlight supply. There are plenty of choices when it comes to selecting bulbs for your greenhouse but there are none that are as efficient as a high-pressure sodium bulb system. A metal halide simply will produce much less light per watt there’s also much more glare from the bulb which can hinder growth of plants. The more consistent lighting that is found in high-pressure sodium produces a much higher quality product and is able to much better mimic real sunlight.
A 1000 Watt HPS bulb will also last much longer than a metal halide light. Having fewer lamps that you need to dispose of will help with your environmental impact as a business and also help you to save money off of your lighting costs. In some cases high-pressure sodium bulbs will be able to run for over a third longer than a metal halide bulb. With a maximum bulb life of around 24,000 hours this can mean that you can drastically reduce the cost of your bulb replacement cost and make sure that your bulbs will be always running. Having dead zones in your greenhouse can seriously affect your business and potentially lead to crops dying out because of their lack of sunlight. Catching a bulb early or knowing that your 1000 Watt HPS will be able to outperform your old bulbs and thus stay on for much longer reducing the amount of time that your plants are without sunlight, can give you peace of mind and also help you to save money in your business. Loss crops as a result of the dead zone can be a serious detriment to your crop yield. Making sure that there’s always sunlight streaming in and that it is of the highest quality to regular natural, sunlight will help you to be a much more successful business.
If you’re interested in switching over to 1000 Watt HPS bulbs, there are plenty of calculators online that will help you to determine your current energy costs using the fixturing that you have in your greenhouse currently. Searching through your existing lighting and then comparing it with what you could be working with in the switchover can lead to some shocking results for the cost of running your business.
