Continuing its efforts to help independent farmers provide fresh, locally grown food to communities across the country, Illumitex is providing New Buffalo, Michigan-based Green Spirit Farms with its groundbreaking LED grow lights. The Illumitex technology will replace induction lighting in Green Spirit’s existing vertical farm operations and will be the sole lighting source for planned expansion farms.
The decision to light up with Illumitex followed a lengthy and thorough assessment, where Green Spirit tested numerous lights of various types.
“Illumitex LEDs will allow us to grow more produce in less time using less energy, which ultimately is good for our business, our customers and the planet we all share,” says Daniel Kluko, Green Spirit’s director of research and development.
Eric Anderson, Illumitex VP of marketing and business development, says it is important to grow fresh food close to the population, and this new partnership will help make that goal a reality.
