Liht Cannabis Corp. has selected Agnetix’s liquid-cooled, LED lighting system for its cultivation facilities in B.C., a change expected to enhance plant health and slash by more than half energy costs compared to traditional systems.

Liht reports that Agnetix’s system—said to include unparalleled power, advanced controls and monitoring features—will be used in all B.C. projects, including the newly announced 486,000 sq. ft of high-tech indoor cultivation facilities.

Among other things, the lights are fully dimmable, while sensors and cameras can be connected to collect critical environmental metrics, including air temp, leaf-surface temperatures, humidity, CO2, airspeed and more, the statement notes.

“Our cutting-edge facilities draw a tremendous amount of power for lighting and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems. With the Agnetix system, we expect to see an immediate cost reduction in our energy bill and a more efficient operation,” says Richard Huhn, a director for Liht, which has invested in the medical and recreational cannabis space since 2014 and has rapidly expanded to include cultivation, production and dispensary locations in key North American states.

“We have also logged very positive plant-health results using these lights and we are excited to start the new grow,” Huhn continues.

“This unique, highly efficient technology aligns perfectly with Liht’s vision to deliver low-cost, organic cannabis to the world,” says Ihor Lys, founder and CTO of Agnetix, whose mission is to design leading-edge, liquid-cooled LED lighting systems, using the latest in science and technology, for efficient, rapid and healthy growth of indoor agriculture.
