The existing 150 Watt incandescent bulbs were replaced with the 11 Watt Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamps 2.0 for a 93% reduction in energy usage. This is significant for Florensis Kenya because energy costs are very high here. Since the GreenPower lamps have regular fittings, there was no need to change anything in the lighting set-up. The entire system is electronically controlled, making it far less sensitive to voltage fluctuations, so it has a longer lifetime and performs more consistently.
Thanks to using the flowering lamp, Florensis Kenya has seen improvement in preventing early flowering. They have gained more control over their entire lighting system and further reduced their impact on the environment.
"For us, LED just keeps opening new opportunities to improve’’, says Eddy Verbeek, General Manager of Florensis.
