What sets us apart is that we understand that today’s consumer is experiencing change in all aspects of their life, and at a rapid pace. Many times the consumer has change thrust upon them that is not user friendly or transparent. This is no different than what has occurred in lighting as the result of recent energy legislation in the United States as well as worldwide. Traditional light bulbs are being eliminated because they cannot meet the new requirements established by the Department of Energy (DOE). Specifically, their new regulations are targeting energy efficiency via new minimum requirements on lumens per watt thresholds. This has led to all sorts of new LED light bulbs that have a completely different look. In some cases a “Star Trek” type look with metal fins, odd shapes, and offensive piercing light from the LED chips.
