Ways the DLC is addressing your lighting questions
Added on 08 December 2022
Greenhouse Grower Senior Editor Brian Sparks recently caught up with Kasey Holland, Technical Manager of Horticulture at DLC, to learn more about how the organization works with growers to learn more about and address their most critical needs at a time when energy savings can make or break a company’s bottom line.
Brian Sparks: In your conversations with growers, what are some of the most common concerns or challenges they mention?
Kasey Holland: Some of the biggest concerns that we hear from growers are incorporating a new lighting system will impact the overall process and change the quality of the crop being grown (i.e. a risk to their brand), as well as whether the capital expense of the new lighting equipment is too high for crops that are already produced with minimal profits. They also ask us, while controls can enable greater process efficiency, what can they do if the luminaire or lighting control manufacturer goes out of business and their products no longer operate as intended and aren’t serviceable?
