DC in the Greenhouse
DC in the horticulture
The greenhouse market is widely using HID lighting fixtures to illuminate the crops. When using supplemental lighting based on AC, a lot of energy is wasted in the conversion of AC into DC in each lighting fixture. This energy loss is converted into heat waste in each fixture. If the entire greenhouse would use DC, these losses would be reduced. By centralizing conversion of AC to DC in the greenhouse, instead of local conversion in each of the lighting fixtures, a lot of energy would be saved.
