Rebate details

Just because a light is brighter than other types, doesn’t mean it’s good for growing plants. Horticultural LED lighting produces the necessary wavelengths of light needed for plant growth. These wavelengths, called photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), are critical for photosynthesis. PAR is measured as photosynthetic photon flux (PPF). Our horticultural LED lighting rebates are categorized by their PPF output.
