CEA Round Table: Utility Companies

March 2022 GLASE Webinar by Lucas Wachob (Franklin Energy), Martin Hudi (National Grid), Andrew Gustafson (TRC Companies)

Horticultural LEDs are now 50% more efficient than traditional high pressure sodium technology. However, implementation costs are still the main barrier for the adoption of energy-efficient lighting systems in greenhouses and indoor farms. To help growers overcome these barriers, utility companies have developed agricultural programs to incentivize the implementation of energy-efficient LED lighting systems and controls. During this GLASE round table, you will hear from three industry experts about available opportunities for financial incentives and rebate programs. You’ll also learn about the benefits provided to growers who want to install or upgrade their lighting systems.
