Solar LED lights have been around for some time. However, lately, they are undergoing transition with the passage of time and evolving technology. Recently, a Wisconsin manufacturer, Energybank has launched a new fusion technology in solar LED light fixtures. These can find applications in commercial and industrial places.
As per the Energybank officials, the new technology looks like a typical light fixture; it doesn’t convert the power as a result light lasts longer and is more cost-effective. The Manitowoc-based company has been working on the technology for years.
“There really is no regular solar LED,” said founder Neal Verfuerth. “Everything on the market today has a battery and a lot of apparatus to make a grid-connected, whereas this doesn’t have that.”
The technology segregates users from the power grid so buildings can be lit independently. Additionally, a phone app can also be used to measure the amount of power needed based on the sun’s current location. With this new technology, it would be possible to use solar power more effectively and eventually generate better lighting.
Gov. Scott Walker said the company continues to be a leader in technology and helps bring more talent to the state.
“It’s huge just looking at the number of employees. We’re talking just about Energybank. The growth that they’ve had has more than doubled almost tripled the number of employees,” Walker said. “We’re going to need to attract more millennials here.”
