Are LEDs better than incandescent?

LEDs use much less energy than incandescent bulbs because diode light is much more efficient, power-wise, than filament light. LED bulbs use more than 75% less energy than incandescent lighting. At low power levels, the difference is even larger.

WHAT LED is equivalent to a 1000w HPS?

Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 600 Despite the 600 in the name, this light is easily equivalent to 1000 watts of HPS power and is actually the most powerful fixture on this list.

Are LEDs as good as HPS?

LEDs are much the same. Though they’re generally more efficient than HPS (with some clocking 2.8 µmol/joule), some LEDs are less efficient than high-quality HPS fixtures, and they give you less light.

What LED light is equivalent to 600W HPS?

For example, the US-made Platinum P450 274W LED grow light (which is listed as equivalent to a 600W HPS) offers 11 bands ranging from ultraviolet to infrared.

How many plants can I grow under 1000w LED?

Yield Lab 1000W HPS+MH Cool Hood Reflector Grow Light Kit (Price: $239.95) — With a 1000w grow light, you’ll get 130,000 lumens from an HPS bulb and 110,000 lumens from an MH bulb. That’s sufficient to provide coverage for up to 6 plants.

How much does a 1000w LED yield?

The yield from a single 1000w lamp is about 2 lbs per harvest.

Do LEDs increase yield?

As effective as red light is in flowering, you need a higher balance of blue in vegetation to prevent stretching (an HPS side effect) so you have strong, healthy plants to support high yields. This is why spectrum variable LED grow lights are such a powerful tool for boosting yields.

How much can a 600 watt LED yield?

A 600w HPS light can produce up to 150 to 300 grams in optimal growing environments, which is 0.5 grams per watt or less. LEDs, however, can produce as high as 1 to 1.5 grams per watt.

How much does it cost to run a 600w LED grow light?

Multiply $0.0195374 by the number of hours you plan to run the lights (14 hours). The cost to run the lights per day is $0.2735236 or $8.20 per month. If I have an HID (high intensity discharge) light with a 600 watt bulb in it, using the same method of calculation, it would cost me $30.90 per month.
