Energy-efficient farm lighting can boost production, save money, and improve security and worker safety.
High-quality lighting is important for all of Vermont’s farms—dairy, maple, vegetable, horticultural, and others. Improving artificial light can boost milk production, indoor plant growth, and employee productivity. And as farms upgrade their lighting, they can save up to 75% per year by using high-efficiency bulbs and fixtures. These products last longer, reduce maintenance costs, and create a safer, more secure work environment.
Where Farm Lighting Is Used
Energy-efficient LEDs and fluorescents boost productivity, safety, and comfort in many farm structures and spaces. They provide better area lighting for horse arenas, farmyards, sugar houses, and dairy barns. Task lighting is improved in processing and sorting rooms, milking parlors, egg-packing rooms, and repair shops. And in offices, screw-based LEDs and CFLs offer excellent, cost-effective general and task lighting.
