    What about 12v systems for those of us off grid? I live on a Canalboat and want to try a small scale aquaponics setup. However, I want to do it year round so need artificial light.
    Already all my fixed lights and torch/lantern back ups are LED and although I have mains power via inverter almost everything I use is 12v.

    Try looking into Thinklux growing tube lights. They cheap. You can hang them virtually or horizontally.

    sometimes, a like in the winter, the additional heat generated by HID lighting is beneficial and over all more efficient because you don't have to introduce a separate heat source. you should re do this video in the summer months when heat is a problem rather then a benefit.

    lol, my physics professor at colorado state university called incandescent lights "heaters that also generate light". xD LEDs' far cooler operation temperatures (lol, with far greater PAR!) means that for crops that require close lighting and moderate temperatures (e.g., cannabis), your cooling costs are significantly less. additionally, you can get LEDs with diodes that emit in UVB, to increase production of valuable resins, etc.

    LED is definitely the way to go with any indoor grow.

    I bought a Mars Hydro 300W Led for my aquaponics. It seemed like the best option for my low budget. It couldn't have been happier with it, it grew spinach, swiss chard, basil, etc very well. I would love to buy a couple more of them and really get things super charged.
