## How much does a 1000 watt LED yield?

The yield from a single 1000w lamp is **about 2 lbs per harvest**.

## How much area do LED grow lights cover?

The average LED grow light draws about 32 watts to cover **1 sq ft for** flowering. Compare this to a typical HID fixture which rings in at 40 watts per square foot (assuming a 5′ x 5′ area, or 25 sq ft coverage area). Using an HID in a 4′ x 4′ will bring the power coverage up to 62.5 watts per sq ft.

## How close should my 1000 watt light be to my plants?
