Vertical farm saves cost and emissions with LEDs
Shoots Microgreens have innovated to become the first vertical farm in New Zealand – reaping the benefits of customisable LED lights; from increased productivity, to significant cost and energy savings.
Shoots co-owner Matt Keltie opened the business in February 2018, after gaining funding support from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) to install the LED grow lights.
