Try searching. Lots of posts about LEDs.

@trisha_51, If these posts don't have you running for the hills yet, then maybe I can help. Forget about led's right now. The technology just isn't there yet for the money you'll spend on a led fixture. Not to mention, I have yet to see any impressive results from led grown plants. Sure you will save some money on electricity, but if you go with fluorescent lighting, you will save money on the light to offset the electricity costs. Hope this helps.
