Recognized for our groundbreaking work in advancing efficiency and sustainability within horticultural applications through innovative LED lighting solutions, this award underscores our commitment to pioneering technologies that can transform agriculture for the better.

Catoctin Mountain Growers (CMG)

In 2020 through the present, JumpLights worked with with Catoctin Mountain Growers (CMG), a 15-acre greenhouse in Keymar Maryland, to replace their HPS lighting and provided supplemental greenhouse lighting. JumpLights installed hundreds of our NOVA Greenhouse lights to replace their HPS lights. This enabled Catoctin Mountain growers to decrease their turn time by 3 weeks!

In collaboration with CMG in 2021, JumpLights won a $200,000 grant through TEDCO’s Agriculture and Rural Rebuild (ARR) Challenge. The ARR challenge specifically funds technology-empowered initiatives that help our rural and agricultural businesses recover, rebuild and pivot from the economic crisis, primarily due to COVID-19. The ARR challenge also encourages purposeful collaboration between rural businesses, research institutions, and industry partners.

Maryland Industrial Partnerships Program (MIPS)
