BioStar's LED Lighting Partners
With BioStar’s exclusive EnergyShare program, LED lighting is no longer an expense. It is an investment in energy savings! By switching to LEDs with no upfront costs, your savings pay for your lighting upgrade. You will turn a cost into an asset, making your business more profitable and sustainable!
Savings With LED Lighting
Reduction in lighting utilities between 55-85%
LEDs convert 95% of energy consumed to light; Incandescents lose 95% of energy consumed to heat
Annual lighting maintenance cost savings between 70-90%
LED lights last on average 50,000 to 100,000 hours. That is 5 times as long as average fluorescent bulbs, and up to 30 times longer than halogen bulbs
Improved controls such as occupancy sensors, photosensors & timers
Tax Advantages & Available Rebates
Quality Of Light
- LED lights produce more light per watt than incandescent and halogen bulbs
- Eliminates noise and drastically reduces heat output
- Excellent color rendering
- Better light coverage & a controlled focus area
- No Flicker
- Better light equals improved customer experience, healthier work environment & increased security
- Incandescent and fluorescent bulbs are very fragile; LED lights are made with solid state components making it difficult to break with external shock
- Low energy consumption
- Reduce business carbon footprint
- LED lights do not contain mercury or other hazardous materials, unlike fluorescent lights
More Benefits of LED Lighting
Extensive research and development in the LED industry is uncovering many benefits of LED lighting. Other LED benefits include proven health benefits. The similarity to daylight and color control increase productivity & well-being, as well as eliminate some health & sleep problems.
Heating, Ventilation, and Air conditioning can account for up to 30% of a buildings annual energy usage. Biostar specializes in implementing cutting edge technology into your HVAC systems that drastically reduce your consumption and peak demand. A typical HVAC retrofit or new installation can save as much as 60% of utility costs associated with air conditioning. Retrofitting your existing HVAC units can reduce the wear and tear on your system and extend the life of the unit. Controls and active monitoring systems can help increase efficiencies of HVAC units to reduce your operating expenses even further.
BioStar is driven by the newest and most efficient technology so we can ensure we are capturing as much savings as possible. We are technology agnostic and are willing to find the product that suits our customers’ needs best.
Rebates and tax deductions can help reduce project costs up to 40% and reduce paybacks to as little as 12 months. BioStar’s financing requires no cash upfront and your monthly payments will be less than the savings from your retrofits.
Mechanical systems are essential to operating your business, but are often plagued with inefficiencies. BioStar provides a detailed evaluation of your mechanical systems, and provides solutions to optimize usage and make them as efficient as possible.
Some of our services include:
- High-efficiency motors and drives
- Hot water / water
- Ammonia compression
- Automated and User Defined Controls
Utility companies make mistakes billing their customers all the time, but understanding and identifying these mistakes is time consuming and difficult while running your business effectively. BioStar will evaluate your utility bills and identify these mistakes for you, taking money back from the utility and onto your balance sheet where it belongs.

Our design approach is always changing as new products and technologies are released into the marketplace. This allows us to be flexible and customize a solution that is best suited for the customer, whether it be a standalone solar PV installation or solar PV + battery storage for reducing off-peak demand. Our relationships in the industry allow us to procure the equipment at the best rates in the industry.
Energy storage is rapidly evolving into a necessary solution for energy markets. Storage unlocks the ability to enhance renewable energy projects as well as reduce customers demand charges and stabilize their energy use. They can also serve as an emergency back-up energy supply to keep critical systems running in the event the grid drops out. BioStar is technology agnostic when it comes to batteries and will source the best better for your particular application.
Batteries + Solar
Utilizing batteries with Solar PV enables the customer to generate excess energy and store the energy for later use when solar is not producing.
Storing energy during cheap rate periods enables the customer to discharge the cheap energy during high demand periods saving money.
Battery storage can be used a source of backup power in times of emergency when the grid is disconnected.
SuperSix 6-0-0 Organic Nitrogen Fertilizer
The first true 6% water soluble N organic certified and OMRI-listed organic nitrogen fertilizer
- Water-soluble and plant-available no matter the conditions
- SuperSix is the only OMRI-approved, liquid-organic source of 100% WATER-SOLUBLE NITROGEN fertilizer on the market
- The most plant-available, organic fertilizer in the industry today
- Performs during low ambient and soil temperatures of the early season
- Easy to use
- Flows easily and cleanly through drip lines and through sprayers without clogging
- Food safe
- OMRI-certified for use on fruits and vegetables within days of harvest
- Both heat-treated and ultra-filtered to ensure safety and quality
SuperSix is a honey-colored, translucent, liquid-organic, ammoniacal, nitrogen-fertilizer that will flow freely through irrigation/fertigation delivery systems as well as drip-tape delivery fertigation systems. It will not clog, has a very non-offensive odor, and is concentrated. SuperSix will meet the NOPA requirements for organic farming and will also comply with OMRI certification criteria. By concentrating, we reduce water content in the liquid to decrease our shipping costs. SuperSix is the best in class-organic liquid-fertilizer for certified organic growers and also the perfect organic input for conventional growers. SuperSix is easy to handle, will not settle, and has a very low freezing temperature. SuperSix is free of pathogens and harmful bacteria because our high-temperature anaerobic digestion process destroys pathogens in manure. It is a revolutionary fertilizer that delivers great results and higher crop yields.
The nitrogen in SuperSix is 100% water soluble.
The 6% fast-acting ammoniacal nitrogen in SuperSix makes it the fastest-acting organic fertilizer in the industry today. Ammoniacal nitrogen is quick-release and readily available for use even in the low ambient and soil temperatures of the early season. This allows it to be used anywhere in the U.S., and in some cases, it may be the difference that will allow the grower to plant an additional crop per season.
Easily deliverable. Fertigation-ready
SuperSix is filtered through a 500-mesh screen and can be applied by any irrigation or fertigation system.
High 5% potassium content.
The high concentration of potassium in our product makes this an optimal fertilizer for finishing any crop. Potassium help to move sugars from the leaves of the plant to the grain or fruit which drives yield. The N and K combination in SuperSix provides the perfect balance to grow leaves, moves sugars, and allow your crop to meet its genetic potential.
SuperSix fertilizer contains no sodium nitrate.
Products that add sodium nitrate (Chilean Nitrate) do so to raise their N percentages. It is a low cost fix to increase nitrogen, however it can only be used as a 20% supply of the overall fertilization. In order to comply with OMRI and NOP regulations, the grower can only use products containing sodium nitrate as 20% of their overall nitrogen application. SuperSix liquid organic fertilizer can be applied as the total source of N.
Food-safe and OMRI certified with no restrictions.
Most organic fertilizers cannot be applied to Tier 1 Fruits and Vegetables within 90 days of harvest. Our patent pending process eliminates virtually all pathogens and harmful bacteria, resulting in fertilizers that are safe for food crops, including Tier 1 Produce. It can be applied at any point during the grow cycle, including within days of harvest! Our high-temperature anaerobic digestion process meets the NOP “Allowed” standard of time and temperature pasteurization for food safety.
