Thanks to the generous contributions from the Investment Agriculture Foundation, QuantoTech was able to further develop energy-saving LED lighting systems that illuminate the shadows cast by traditional horticultural lighting companies. QuantoTech was able to create lighting solutions that benefitted both northern growing and enclosed growing facilities who both encounter similar lighting constraints.

“‘By using next generation LED lighting technology, growers of leafy greens, micro-greens and culinary herbs can reduce their energy requirements for production by 30-40 percent and increase yields by up to 25 percent,’ explains QuantoTech founder, Alycia van der Gracht, adding the new technology also decreases production time.”

More on the results of QuantoTech’s project can be found in the Investment Agriculture Foundation’s 2016 annual report, and more information on the Investment Agriculture Foundation can be found here.


Come see us at the #BCTECH Summit on March 14th & 15th, 2017 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West in Ballroom CD. We will be showcasing a couple of lights in the Ministry of Agriculture’s BW Greenhouse and discussing opportunities to grow in northern and enclosed environments.

We look forward to seeing you all there.

QuantoTech Solutions has supplied computer-controlled LED lights for a research project Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.

“The controllability of the Q400 gives research facilities the ability to fine tune the light output to their needs using our API to build their own custom, control software. The customization possibilities are some of the reasons that our Q400 smart systems are so unique,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.
