When searching for saving some electricity found this web page
we could replace electricity and growing carpet or any other high light requirement plants in
After considering the requirement for the installation of such a unit at homes it looks like a lot of plumbing work will be required. we will even need to a fix a location for a planted tank well planned before installation within the light equipment's reach .
For any one in this hobby constructing a home might want to think about this
Hope there is a DIY method to get this done cheap .
If any one has been using such lighting please do post your experience .

That's very interesting!
Although, it gives light only during the day. I wonder how it will work out for non-sunny days. I wouldn't bother about that in Chennai! But other cold places? Also, would be cumbersome if someone wanted light after daylight hours.
Also, did you try googling the cost?!?! It says these systems start at $10000! That's about Rs. 5L!!! and that is only starters.
Even if someone tried a DIY and ended up with half that amount, it is still quite a large sum.
But I'm sure it will come to be in the future.
IMO for the present, solar powered lighting is quite a viable option.
