Why Ultra Yield Solutions?
Unlike other lighting experts, we speak grower. Technology and specifications mean very little to plants. UYS understands photosynthesis at a molecular level and how today’s LED technology can maximize it. That’s exactly what you need in a partner.

It’s more than PPFD, DLI, and spectrum. It’s a delicate and integrated bio system where the smallest variance can lead to massive changes in yield. Check out our blogs and other recent news to stay informed.
You’ve found an old warehouse ideal for growing. It’s got water, a loading dock, a pool of potential employees, not far from retail customers, a sweetheart deal from the building owner, and local SMB tax credits to boot! With a little luck from contractors and building inspectors, you could be harvesting within a year. How […]
The key to profitability is driving out cost. This mantra is critical to any manufacturing facility regardless of what it produces. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is a classic example of leveraging scale and smart infrastructure to enjoy good profitability. The cannabis market is feeling extreme profit crunch, particularly in mature markets, making operational efficiency the […]
Human lighting serves a very different purpose than plant lighting. Humans use light to see. Plants use light to exist as it’s the most critical component to photosynthesis. Sunlight starts a chain reaction in plants that creates carbohydrates (sugars) that eventually become apples, tomatoes, lettuce, and more. Perhaps there’s a reason “Let there be light” […]
No. Today’s spectra and intensities make LED lamps outstanding, highly efficient replacements to HPS. That said, temperature tends to be the largest influencer on yield during swap-outs—not source of light! In greenhouses, watch your canopy temperature and adjust accordingly. For indoor grows, increase facility temperature around 10o F to account for the heat loss you’ll notice when switching to LED; then tweak as necessary.
No. It may have value in the lab when determining the best recipe for a new strain. Once determined, uniformity is critical—not variance. Keep tunable fixtures in the lab, uniform fixtures everywhere else.
It can be. The Federal Government prohibits FDIC institutions from lending to cannabis facilities. Others apply a rate that can only be considered “loan shark.” UYS has isolated funding sources willing to invest in this segment that provide rates more in line with traditional financing. Let us show you what we can do.
Depending on the fixture, the answer is about 40% vs. the cost to power HPS. When you add-in eligible utility incentives and lower-cost funding rates, your monthly electric bill can be lower with new LED lights than sticking with your old, inefficient HPS fixtures.
Five years! HPS fixtures and bulbs come with no warranty, annual bulb replacements, supplemental AC costs to mitigate the heat, and over 1000W of inefficiency. Our LED fixtures come with five-year guarantees and an expected life that approaches 10!
