Absolutely! I have a 4x4 tent that allows me to produce tomatoes, carrots, onions, and any other things that I want to eat through the winter! There are many options available, and I personally prefer LED. With a good LED panel, you can save on electricity, while giving plants a full spectrum (to plants that is) light source with no wasted spectrum. These also produce much less heat than conventional bulbs, although the old methods are still tried and true, at the cost of heat and power consumption.

What is the size of the area that you are trying to light? This will give me an idea of how much light you will need.
