Evolve Takes a Major Step Forward

Working closely with the leading experts in plasma lighting technology, we are close to a revolutionary solution to not only optimal artificial lighting in horticulture, animal husbandry (indoor chicken and egg production), but for the human habitation as well.

We can not claim higher luminous efficiency than a sodium lamp or higher PAR (Photo synthetically Active Radiation) than a metal halide or sodium lamp because when we measure our plasma lamp in lumens or micro moles it nearly always measures at least 30% less than other HID lamps of the same wattage. We will claim a higher PUR (Photo synthetically Useful Radiation) value because we believe the plasma lamps are the only lamps that are truly a full and continuous spectrum and thus, completely unlike LED’s, deliver all of the light that is useful for photosynthesis.

Conventional methods of measuring light for humans use lumens, deemed useless for horticulture, horticulturists measure light in micro moles (µmoles). Working with British, German and Dutch horticulturists and researchers we have learnt that micro mole measurements are the best indicator we have at this time. The results from real world tests indicate that a plasma lamp, that measures 30% micro moles ‘less’ than a High Power Sodium Lamp of same wattage, produces at least 30% more biomass, and can fully grow cucumbers to European standards 10 days sooner.

Clearly there is still much we need to learn about light and how plants, and animals, respond to it.

Extensive trials and product development  are bringing this near market technology closer to commercial reality.
