“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.” – Aaron Bean, owner of Green Leaf.

Green Leaf purchased the Heliospectra LX601C lighting system for their cannabis cultivation facility located in Sitka. 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.

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.

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.” – Caroline Nordahl Wells, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Heliospectra
