Benefits of LED Horticulture Lighting
LED lighting increases crop yield and allows CEA operations to maximize harvests throughout every season of the year.
LED fixtures and racks can be customized to fit your indoor space precisely. Also, LED lighting can be tuned to meet your exact lighting specifications.
LED lighting uses less energy than traditional lighting sources and requires less maintenance, lowering operating costs.
LED lamps and fixtures run cooler and have a considerably longer lifespan than traditional HID and fluorescent lighting.

Video: What is Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA)?
FSG's Director of Horticulture, Christopher Hinshaw explains what Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is, how it is an improvement on traditional farming, and what types of services FSG can provide CEA growers.
Video: Challenges When Building a Grow Facility
There are several challenges that come with building a grow facility.
FSG is on a mission to lead the CEA industry by providing turnkey lighting and electrical solutions along with technologies that identify the specific needs of the grower, making the process easier through streamlined implementation, all while maximizing the growth and yield of the crops.
From project lighting design, product specification, turnkey installation, project management, rebates, financing, service, and ongoing maintenance, FSG Horticulture offers a full solution for the CEA customer’s facility lighting and electrical needs.
Transform Your Business with a Two Year ROI
LED lighting is, in fact, more expensive than legacy high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting. But there is more to the story.
CEA operations that shift to LED lighting report yield increases between 5-10%. When combined with the dramatic savings in energy consumption, the typical return on investment (ROI) period for an LED conversion is approximately 24 months. In just two short years, increased revenues and energy savings can combine to pay for your new LED lighting project.
This calculation does not even include the dramatic maintenance and labor cost savings when you stop replacing expensive HID lamps every six months. With proper operation and controls, horticultural LED lighting can deliver explosive yields and dramatically lower operating costs for 50,000 maintenance-free hours (11.4 years at 12 hours/day).
Supercharge your yield with the right plan for your crop.
FSG excels at defining the specific lighting requirements that are right for your particular crop and environmental conditions. Using AGi32, the lighting industry’s premier calculation and modeling tool, we can provide you with precise plans for tuning your horticultural lighting to deliver peak yields for your fruits, vegetables, floriculture, hemp, and all other indoor crops.
Leave the guesswork behind. We can discuss PAR, PPF, PPFD, and DLI, and we offer custom spectrum lighting options that will take your business to the next level.
Wherever you are, we have a solution for you. With offices and partners across the United States, we can offer local and national project rollouts.
Boost Your Yield With CO2 Monitoring and More.
Monitoring CO2 levels in your facility is critical to the success of your yield. Our IoT solutions can monitor the CO2 in your facility as well as:
- Soil Moisture & Temperature
- Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR)*
- Leaf Moisture
Data is logged and monitored in the cloud and accessible, via the internet, with one login on a single dashboard. Alerts can be emailed or texted.
* The PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) Sensor measures photosynthetic light levels in both air and water. PAR sensors continuously report the Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD) that help you adjust lighting intensities to maximize growth and yield.
