Fluence by OSRAM (Fluence), a global provider of energy-efficient LED lighting solutions for commercial cannabis and food production, announced the first of two comprehensive retrofit guides specifically designed to assist cultivators and growers in determining what they need for a complete, seamless retrofitting process. The first guide, Greenhouse LED Retrofit Guide, outlines tips and tricks for greenhouse operators and growers for outlining and optimizing their LED implementation and utilization following a retrofit.

“While more greenhouse operators are realizing the undeniable benefits of LEDs, there is more to a retrofit than simply changing some lights and flipping a switch,” said David Cohen, CEO of Fluence. “Our retrofit guides offer operators the resources, data and guidelines they need to ensure their LED implementation meets their exact greenhouse requirements to maximize crop yield without sacrificing plant quality or energy consumption.”

Greenhouse operators can use the guide to further understand the clear benefits of LEDs, including:

  • Factors affecting an LED system’s return on investment.
  • How LEDs decrease—and increase—energy consumption for lower costs overall.
  • Why LEDs enable increased PPFD throughout the warmer months.
  • How to take the next steps in the analysis of an LED retrofit.

The Greenhouse LED Retrofit Guide also details how operators and growers can properly select an LED spectrum and fixture based on the crop’s cultivation requirements, a region’s energy prices and a team’s overall greenhouse goals.

“We want operators and growers to know that retrofitting doesn’t have to be a complicated process,” Cohen continued. “We are in the corner of those who undergo the retrofitting process by providing them with a complete, comprehensive guide that details every step in the process. Our Horticulture Services team is also available to work with operators and growers throughout the entire retrofitting process to ensure a smooth and successful implementation.”
