The Grove Nevada is a 40,000 sf, vertically oriented, cannabis grow operation. With four double tiered flower rooms and one triple tiered vegetative room, the operation is state of the art. Constructed with GMP (good manufacturing practices) standards, one could eat off of the shiny white floor. No corners were cut in the development of the facility.
In a recent article on Heliospectra's blog, its explained why the growers choose LEDS. "From an efficiency perspective, The Grove pays approximately half of the electricity cost that other HID oriented grows pay. That decrease in cost of goods will be important as downward price pressure grows in this ever commoditizing market. The choice to use Heliospectra LED grow lights also allowed for half of the initial HVAC infrastructure to be built. This reduction in up-front capital expenditure resulted in a one year return on investment on the LED lights."
