With the increasing demand for urban food farms and the legalization of Cannabis the demand to reduce the load on the grid is becoming critical in some areas. Legacy lighting technologies can use up to 68 watts per square foot but until recently has been the preferred source to get the required yields of a profitable crop. The science behind the requirements to grow plants along with a few case studies using LED technology will be presented by Corrine Wilder of Fluence Lighting. Doug Oppedal will present front line results on legacy and efficient options from a utility perspective with experience from over 70 grow operation site visits in the last 4 years.
 Most of our world as a lighting professional has been lighting the space for humans. It’s not lumens for humans in the plant world, think PAR for plants.
