When you choose a power generator solution for any project, sizing is crucial. A power supply that doesn’t provide enough power won’t keep all of your lights and equipment running reliably. An undersized power supply will also work harder, which can shorten its lifespan. On the other hand, oversizing your generator costs you money that would be better invested in other aspects of your grow room operation.
Start by listing all of the lights and equipment you have in your room. You’ll find power consumption details on your lamps, pumps, fans and other electrical equipment. Make a note of the equipment you have today and also take into consideration any future growth. If you will shortly be adding new lights to expand your grow room, you may want to size your generator to accommodate them. If you won’t be upgrading right away, you may want to choose a generator solution that suits your current configuration and make plans to add an additional generator or upgrade to a larger unit in the future.
In all cases, knowing how much power your grow room lights will use allows you to choose the right sized generator. If you plan on growing your facility, allowing for at least 10% additional power can be beneficial if looking to add power in the near future. This will keep your installation operating during power surges at startup or if you need to run any additional equipment on a temporary or occasional basis.
