Summary

LED Technology and Integrated Design New Genetics and GrowRay Technologies have worked together in an open and collaborative fashion to optimize production and minimize costs. As the cannabis industry matures, more cultivators and technology developers will continue to work more closely together to integrate whole-systems solutions and share data. This represents a change from the more opaque, less open culture cannabis cultivation has been know for. As price pressures, regulatory demands and an increased desire for sustainable practices continue tobecome more pronounced, success stories like the New Genetics and GrowRay partnership will become the new standard. Cannabis cultivation can now be profitable and sustainable. New Genetics: A Model for the Future.

“GrowRay lights are a clear winner for our grows for the following reasons:

  • Low profile fixture allowed us to use double tier, this was impossible with HID. 
  • Light sensors dim the lights when ambient light is sufficient saving electricity and heat load, perfect for our greenhouse. 
  • Saved nearly 20% UPFRONT cost due to lower heat load and less exhaust fans
  • Service and support is top notch. Anything we needed, GrowRay’s sales and support team handled for us. Barry, Donovan, Ash and the rest of the team are there to support us as a true partner.”
