LED lighting economics calculators
As part of HDC-funded project 'PO10: LED Lighting for Horticultural Applications – Establishing the Economics of Current Hardware Offerings', Farm Energy Centre has produced three calculators to assist you in making the decision about using LED lighting.
- Interlighting: This calculator shows the costs and benefits of using LED interlighting for vine crops alongside traditional overhead lighting from High Pressure Sodium or Metal Halide.
- Tiered growing: This calculator shows the costs and benefits of using LED lights in multilayer applications and for single layer supplementary lighting.
Photoperiod extension: This calculator compares using LED lights against traditional GLS or CFL bulbs for daylight extension.
