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 expect and need in a partner.

We Are Your Partner

Different crops and facility types need different solutions. That’s why we’re a distributor for many brands and solutions able to meet the product form, photonic delivery, and pricing requirements you need to maximize yield.

We Bring Expertise

You need a partner you can trust who understands the problems you face every day—things affecting crop yield, disease and pest infestation, as well as plant physiology. We speak grower and can connect you to exactly what you need.

We Can Finance You

Funding can be tricky and expensive when venture capital is unavailable. UYS has partnered with select institutions to fund LED swap-outs to deliver an all-in monthly cost that is often below what you’re paying currently.

We Care

Indoor farming is changing how the world is fed. But it only works when sustainability is profitable. Our solutions not only reduce your energy costs, they also reduce your carbon footprint while boosting your bottom line.

FAQs

Will swapping over from HPS to LED lighting harm yield?

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 will notice when switching to LED; then tweak as necessary.

Is tunable spectrum better?

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.

Isn’t funding cannabis facility upgrades extremely expensive?

It can be. The U.S. Federal Government prohibits FDIC banking institutions from lending to cannabis facilities. Others lenders apply a higher rate that can only be considered “loan shark.” UYS has isolated funding sources investing in this sector that provide rates more in line with traditional financing. Let us show you what we can do.

How much expense can I save by switching over to LEDs?

Depending on the fixture, the answer is about 40% versus 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 lighting than sticking with old, inefficient HPS fixtures.

What is the warranty on your LED fixtures?

Five years! HPS luminaires and bulbs come with no warranty, annual bulb replacements, supplemental AC costs to mitigate the heat, and over 1000W of inefficiency. Typically, LED fixtures come with a five-year guarantee and an expected lifetime exceeding 50,000 hours!
