LED Grow Lights vs. HID Grow Lights


LED vs. HID is one of the hottest debates among growers. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that we’re on the pro-LED side of the argument. After all, we’ve built an entire business around LEDs. But we chose LEDs for a reason. It’s the future of commercial and in-home cultivation.

Not only are LED lights more efficient and environmentally friendly than HID lights, but they’re also better for your plants. The heat output is much lower, significantly reducing the need for cooling. LEDs can also allow you to adjust the light spectrum for each stage of growth, so you can give your plants the exact light they need to nourish them from seed to flower. When you use HIDs, you’re stuck with a static spectrum for the entire growth cycle.

LED lights also save money in the long run, because they use less than half the energy HIDs use, and they last up to 15 years with a very little reduction in light output and quality.

The SolarSystem features the latest generation high-efficiency LEDs as well as the most versatile control system on the market. This commercial indoor LED lighting system is perfect for a single light in a tent or several hundred lights in a large commercial operation.

So, what do you think? Is it time to make the switch?
