The SolarSystem features the latest generation high efficiency LEDs as well as the most versatile control system on the market. This commercial indoor LED lighting system is perfect for a single light in a tent or several hundred lights in a large commercial operation.
Overcoming the limitations of high-intensity discharge lighting systems, the SolarSystem 550 LED grow light system offers programmable spectrum control over multiple wavelengths. It operates at a frequency of 50-60 Hz and draws a maximum current of 3.3A @ 120 V, 1.65 A @ 240 V. Power consumption ranges from 0-400 W, which is exceptional compared to traditional UVB grow lights.
In fact, our full spectrum horticulture LED lights are some of the most durable, energy-efficient commercial LED grow lights on the market. Plus, this grow light system provides uniform lighting over a maximum bloom coverage area of 4 x 4 feet, and a vegetative coverage zone of 6 x 6 feet. Single users and users of commercial grow lights can benefit from a broad-spectrum system that supports photosynthesis and robust plant growth.

California LightWorks visits FLRish Farms, a converted, 52,000-square-foot greenhouse facility in Salinas, California. FLRish Farms is a major supplier to Harborside - an iconic California cannabis company - and they’ve installed over 2,250 SolarSystem 550 light units from California LightWorks for commercial agriculture.
I’m an experienced grower. Over the years, for LED lighting, I’ve tried three other high end companies, for these other cases quality was good however results were okay/good. For the past recent years I’ve been using three different California Lightworks SOLARXTREME models. From my experience, the plant response to the SOLARXTREME models is incomparable. Plants sing and glow when lights are on. It’s really something special. I’ve always been super happy with the SOLARXTREME models however I’ve been a little bummed, for experimental purposes, this series is without built-in control for timing, spectrum adjustment and dimming. I recently purchased two SolarSystem models with the external controller. Wow! It’s exceeded expectations. Plants continue to glow and sing plus I have all the controls I need. No exaggeration here. I absolutely recommend the SolarSytem series and the controller and the SOLARXTREME series. One of the SOLARXTREME models I purchased had an electrically broken fan on its arrival. Customer service / tech support over the phone was perfect for handling the replacement. Also made in the USA. I’ll never buy from another company. Quality is top notch. The controller is well designed as well.
I spec stage, studio, and architainment (yes that's really a word) lighting as my daytime job, I'm also a member of the Illuminating Engineering Society, so you might say I have a bit of background... This is my 2nd SolarSystem 550. I bought the first after some research and reviews. Osram LEDs, programmable spectrum control, American made, and 5 year warranty were deciding factors. Plants are looking awesome, starting to flower now. I'll be adding UVB soon.
I've been using California Lightworks products for years and I recently decided to swap out my (2) Solar Xtreme 250's and (1) Solar System 275 from my 2x4 6 foot tall tent and upgrade to (2) Solar System 550's.
This equipment is well worth the expense. In the first month of growing new plants I have seen a noticeable difference / improvement in the rate of growth.
I also added a humidifier to this tent at the same time therefore some of what I have seen can be attributed to the humidifier providing ideal humidity conditions.
I'm looking forward to these flowers when they're finished growing. The first of many flowers that will be grown under my pair of Solar System 550's!
I can’t believe the difference these lights have made!!Controller is a must have to get the best out of lights
This is the second one of these that i've purchased, i got a fluence spydr between them, but the fluence ballast are crap, soo i decided to stick to what has worked.
3 SS-550s, 4x8 tent (25amp circuit handles ALL)
Tent temp 78° - 82°, everything full on.
corner to corner light coverage, no shadow around object on floor. Seedling stage from sprout to seedling produced really healthy trueform plants. Kinda stupid to buy the lights without the controller. Makes all the difference.
Plants are loving this light, they're going off. Controller is awesome!
I have set up two solarsystem550 with controller in a small indoor room to grow veggies/etc year round. I am pleased with the lights and controller. Easy to adjust R,W,B and time. I have only had the lights running for two days, but can see they are exactly what I wanted. Thank you!!
Shipped on time, lights and controller works as advertised.
