“We are committed to perfecting organic, sustainable growing practices that consider the entire life cycle of our plants and products; Fluence’s LED lighting system uses 40 percent less energy than standard high-pressure sodium lights,” said Csaba Reider, president of The Green Organic Dutchman. “Their LED technology aligns with our commitment to sustainability while reducing operating costs. We take tremendous pride in growing high-quality, certified organic cannabis, and we view Fluence as a strategic partner that helps us build efficiency into our strict standard of excellence.”
By incorporating Fluence’s LED lighting solutions into its hybrid greenhouses, TGOD said it will achieve crop uniformity and create new energy efficiencies that keep operating costs low and eliminate seasonality and consistency issues.
