Supplemental lighting

Hello window farmers,

I am so encouraged by reading your posts about your experiences.  I plan to start my farm soon.  I heard that my kit is being shipped today.  I didn’t have the courage to put together a DIY setup, yet.  I wanted to see how the kit works and then copy that.  Where I live, in the northeastern United States, we have short days in the winter and only a few hours of direct sunlight.  I know I will have to supplement the sunlight with some kind of artificial light.  I was hoping to find some LED strips like the ones Window Farm use in their American Museum (see YouTube at link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqE15bh4s-c)  I’ve been searching the internet and haven’t been able to find any.  Anyone using supplemental lighting?  If so, what are you using?
