Sunterra introduction

Sunterra Greenhouse

Sunterra Greenhouse has an expansive facility covering 7.5 acres dedicated to strawberry production and an additional 17.5 acres for tomato cultivation. In order to maximize fruit production through the bench months, Sunterra chose to install Philips LED lighting.

Customer challenge

Due to insufficient and inconsistent natural light levels during the winter months, Sunterra was challenged with achieving stable, reliable production without adding supplemental lighting. With the addition of Philips LED toplighting, Sunterra is now able to avoid production dips while maximizing efficiency.
