Why LED Done Right?


Given the revolutionary transformation from legacy lighting to Solid State LED, Neal began researching market opportunities with the goal of identifying a primary target market and quality LED product that would service those markets. The original company strategy was to source, integrate and finance finished good products offered by a multitude of existing vendors.


A facility was leased to facilitate the real-world testing protocols adopted to assess the overall performance claims made by the various manufacturers. The empirical data collected during the tests was in conflict with an overwhelming number of the claims and representations made on the product specification sheets. Of particular concern were the strongly inferred caveats (often buried in the specification or warranty footnotes) that the product would not actually perform and/or last as long as promised when operated in the intended end-user application. To prevent jeopardizing his company’s reputation, he innovated a better way. Neal determined that energybank would need to manufacture its own product with the simple mission of LED Done Right®.


energybank invested two years and millions of dollars in product development before introducing a homerun commercial/industrial LED product suite that provides superior distributed illumination.


Unlike the competition, energybank technology is designed to control/focus light energy with proprietary optics, then allow the air molecules and airborne particulate matter to diffuse the photon packet uniformly to the work plane while providing a superior VCP Visual Comfort Probability as perceived by customer in the zonal cavity.


Valuing the benefits of quality control, small batch control, and nimbleness in product design, energybank established in-house manufacturing operations. In lieu of outsourcing production, energybank invested in advanced, high-tech Trumpf metal fabrication equipment to get the job done right.


Innovation is a hallmark of energybank, powering its distinctiveness and growth.  energybank is continually researching and developing advanced methods for increasing quality illumination while reducing energy input and managing heat output to achieve new standards in component longevity.

Upgraded lighting in commercial and industrial buildings can be worth far more than its weight in gold.


"We all to often forget that light is for seeing. That's a simple but important point, because the advanced technology that results in more lighting-energy efficiency can also lead to more human-energy efficiency: When people can see better, they can perform visual tasks faster and with far fewer errors. That translates directly to this kind of enhanced productivity: In a commercial or industrial situation involving, say, 250 people, just a 2% productivity gain could easily be worth $300,000 - $500,000 or more annually, and that's on top of the value of energy and demand savings."
