Contender Gardens, a regulated I-502 producer/processor company in Washington state, has been using the Illumitex PowerHarvest since 2015 across their facility. The facility was able to implement the technology with little upfront capital by utilizing local rebates with the assistance of rebate consultants, growrebates.com. The success they saw from the first cycled exceeded expectations.
“When we made the decision to incorporate LED lighting, we were optimistic that we could continue to grow quality product more efficiently,” says Casey Connell, owner and head grower of Contender Gardens. “We were surprised that in the first cycle we saw a mark improvement of resin production. Our plant’s bag appeal is the best it’s ever been.”
