Check with the major hydroponic garden suppliers. Some of the local grow op guys are switching to these type of lights because of the low heat emissions and low power consumption. Be warned these LED lights are not cheap. Some guy was trying to advertise on this forum with ads for LED lights including grow lights. Trouble was his company was in China and they did not have a retail sales outlet in North America. If you wanted to buy a whole container load that was okay. However there must be some retailers selling high power grow lights or the grow op guys would not be able to buy them.

Ever since the law in this province was chaanged so the utility company was forced to report to police any household with a sudden high rate of power consumption the LED lights have become more popular. Locally hydroponic equipment suppliers also have to give the police a list of their customers so be careful who you buy from. No doubt other jurisdictions have similar regulations.
