Hey Growers, What do you think about DC powers LED's?

GNET,

I am back with another question for you to discuss. What do you all think about DC powered LED lighting? I know some of our Gorilla Growers would be highly interested. What are some of the advantages and projected disadvantages that we can come up with inside of these larger grow ops.

I am excited to here some feed back about this.

Feel free to email me.

That sure would make solar panels a worthwhile growing investment.

Only downsides I can think of are typical for DC current – like it doesn’t travel distances particularly well.

Hunter is correct. That problem was resolved by the development of AC, which we use today.

No, it does nor travel distances particularly well. But, those distances are measured in miles. The distances we are talking about at a grow are measured in feet. Therefor, that objection would not apply in this case. Go for it.

Yeah, before Tesla invented AC, Edison envisioned generators on every street corner, which is a very weird idea these days.

Fun article to read up about. :slight_smile:
