Heliospectra Lights Up Alaska Grow
GOTHENBURG, Sweden — Heliospectra AB will provide the lighting system for Green Leaf, a recently licensed cannabis cultivation facility in Sitka, Alaska.
Green Leaf owner-operator Aaron Bean chose the Heliospectra LED-based solution after he determined that it is the only product in the marketplace with the power and versatility to support every stage of the cannabis growth cycle.
“We selected Heliospectra to grow the highest-quality cannabis for our discerning buyers. Independent grower reports prove that the Heliospectra system accelerates harvests by 5-14 days. That means more production and more revenue for Green Leaf.”.
Green Leaf purchased the Heliospectra LX601C lighting system for their cannabis cultivation facility. The LX601C is the market’s premier product for indoor (sole-source) lighting applications, including the world’s largest indoor LED-powered cannabis cultivation facility. The optical distribution of the 630W fixture allows the light to be close to the plant while maintaining a wide, uniform light distribution.
Advanced spectral control empowers growers to manipulate each wavelength’s light intensity, creating the optimal growing environment for their plants. Growers report a rapid return on investment as a result of the increased production rate achieved by reducing flowering time and cutting HVAC costs in half.
“Cannabis industry leaders like Aaron Bean do the math and see that the Heliospectra solution is their fastest path to maximum revenue,” said Caroline Nordahl Wells, Heliospectra vice president for sales and marketing. “When you combine the ability to accelerate harvests of top-quality crops with 50-70% electrical and HVAC savings, it’s easy to see why Heliospectra is not just the most technically advanced solution, it’s also the most cost-effective choice. We are pleased to help Green Leaf achieve their crop performance and financial targets.”
Heliospectra AB specializes in intelligent lighting technology for plant research and greenhouse cultivation. The Company’s lighting system provides an effective and durable technology for cultivating greenhouse and indoor plants by combining several different groups of versatile light emitting diodes (LEDs) with optics, remote sensing techniques, and a robust heat dissipation solution.
After six years of development in Sweden, the company has now begun to expand into the international market. The company has raised more than $ 21 million in capital and has received more than $2.6 million through academic scholarships and grants. Principal owners are Weland Steel, Swedish Industrial Fund, Midroc and Avanza Pension.
