LED Lighting

 

Dear Cannalovers

I guess you already know a little about the LED Lighting, well, you are all in luck!

At PEV Grow we offer you the best LED for marijuana growing, the best LED Kits for indoor growing, for the whole complete cycle (growth and flowering), cheap LED panels with remote control and WIFI for the maintenance of mother plants and cuttings, and much more!

All LED technology at the best price!


LED lamps are one of the best advances for indoor growing, because it offers one of the highest yieldsor grams per watt consumed among all the lighting technologies for marijuana growing used so far.

Compared to the HPS (High Pressure Sodium) or MH (Metal Halide) LED lamps give us a more usable light spectrum for plants, without detracting at all the performance that HPS or MH offer us.

Always thinking about the best value for money and the performance of your crop.

LED Lighting lamps offer a longer life, as they can operate without losing performance for at least 10 years...

...imaginethe amount of crops you can have in that time!


The price of electricity has been rising stealthily and unstoppably in recent years, this is one of the reasons to choose LED lighting equipment for growing marijuana indoors, minimizing production costs and getting the most out of it.

Data referenced to the average household Kwh price for the second quarter of 2020*. These prices do not include direct and indirect taxes, which in some countries can increase the bill up to 68%, representing the largest expense of the electricity bill.

In Spain there are 2 direct taxes that increase the total cost by more than 26%, the VAT and the special tax on electricity, plus another indirect tax of around 7% that is applied on the value of the production of electrical energy. In addition there are other expenses like the rent of the meter, that although it is little also counts.

The price of Kw/h can also vary ostensibly in function of the contracted power, increasing the price as the power increases. In some countries you also pay more the more you consume in total, having a reduced price for the first 100 Kwh consumed.

Using as a reference the cultivation of varieties of 60 days of flowering, and giving 30 days of vegetative growth, this would be the cost per consumption of each luminaire in these countries:

This is the expenditure for electrical consumption of light bulbs or luminaires, to which should be added the consumption of extractors, fans, humidifiers, and other appliances of the crop that also need electricity. Apart is the cost of fertilizers, insecticides, seeds, and other products necessary for the cultivation of cannabis.

Expenditure by type of crop forum - Flowering 50 days
Production per type of grow-room

The price per gram has been estimated by calculating the maximum production expected to be obtained on average with these types of grow light, i.e. 450 grams with 315w LEC, 400 grams with 300w LED, 400 grams with 400w HPS, 150 grams with 200w CFL and 600 grams with 600w HPS.


Let's talk about electricity consumption in Indoor Growing


The price of energy in Spain is one of the most expensive in Europe. For more inri,our government has penalized renewable energies to favor the consumption of energy from fossil sources.

For us, and we imagine that also for the rest of the lovers of cannabis cultivation, this is a major grievance, since our philosophy is to consider the natural, the organic and biological as a source that emanates from ourselves.

The energy and environmental expenditure is therefore very important, and very taken into account by companies in the cannabis sector. Until very recently, a crop with a 400W HPS bulb did not mean more than 40 € per month more on the electricity bill, today, between tax increases applied to energy and the price of Kwh, is a monthly consumption close to 70 €.

Another important thing is the digital adaptation of electricity. They already force to place digital counters in the buildings, and therefore, they will not take long to eliminate of the market the analogical ballasts, to only commercialize to digital ballasts.

We remind you that the LED Lamps do not need ballast.

Next, we present you a comparison of the energy cost of the technologies that we offer in PEV Grow, (HPS, MH, LED and LEC), taking into account a whole cycle of indoor growing, of 1 m2, assuming a flowering time of 60 days. (Complete cycle of 90 days):



Lighting Comparison

*Chart drawn up by the authors taking into account an average electricity cost of 0.3 €/kWh.

**The cost has been calculated taking into account that there are 30 days with a photoperiod of 18/6 h and 60 days with a photoperiod of 12/12 h.

***The reference is for an indoor of 1 m2 equivalent to 600 W HPS.

****No yields are estimated in g of cannabis per watt, as it depends on multiple factors, including the experience of the grower.

LED lighting: A grow full of advantages

*0003

In the last few years LED lighting equipment has evolved a lot. At first the first units launched on the market gave little intensity, that became little production.

With the latest generation LED lamps excellent yields per watt consumed are achieved, moreover, without emitting hardly any heat, allowing even indoor crops in summer.

At PEV Grow we offer you the best LED equipment!


The LED lights are the best in the market.

The best LEDs nowadays are the ones that achieve a full spectrum of light, the so called Full Spectrum LED, and within this category the models Zeus and Attis by Lumatek stand out for their efficiency, as they distribute the light very well all over the growing area.

The new Solux models have nothing to envy to the best brands in the market, as they use the same leds as Samsung in different structures. This is why they ensure a minimum of 50.000 hours of useful life.

Another similar case are the Cosmos by Vanguard, that work with both LEDs and Samsung drivers, but with a very competitive price, so they are ideal for growers who want to replace their lights without investing a lot of money.

And we can not forget the models of Pure Led, with a panel of 645 w and another of 480 w, both adjustable in power, and incorporate Meanwell ballast and Samsung diodes. This same brand has other very interesting LED panels, the Q150, Q240, and Q320, more compact and with a spectacular price.

*The new panelsLED Lumaled, are full cycle, growth and flowering, also have a scale of powers ranging from 120 to 480 W, are more advanced technology than the Phytoled.

The Phytoledcontinue to give good results, with a value for money difficult to match, with powers ranging from 124 to 264 W.

Very economical are the Led Apollo, Led Grow, LED grow-pro, TGL-STAR, very well suited for mini-crops, or small-scale sybaritic self-cultivation.

Another very advanced range in LED technology, is the range Xtrasun LED, with new LED chip, and control by Wifi.

The high performance LED panels blooming LED mount the full spectrum COB LED chip of 3000K.



As you can see, the technology of marijuana cultivation is advancing by leaps and bounds, so that every time you are going to be able to get more out of your buds.

And if you need advice, do not hesitate to call us. The technical team of PEV Grow will attend you in the best way, adapting to all kind of needs.

and you?...Have you already mounted your LED?
