You can be part of this revolution with your pledge now. You can have satisfaction of walking into a store, looking at the light disks, and being able to say, ‘I made that happen.’ Or, you can do nothing and watch LED lighting technology languish on the shelf at $10 because there isn't a path to get the costs out (after all, they had to resort to manufacturing in China to have even a hope in selling the few they do now), while toxic CFL bulbs continue to be produced and sold, eventually destined for our landfills and water supply.
The world looks to technology to deliver energy efficiency, better quality of life, and greater capabilities for lower cost. My epiphany came about when I applied my semiconductor industry thinking, and extensive and multidisciplinary design and manufacturing experience to create the patent pending 2D-Light technology. Despite NliteN's highest lumens per dollar price point, this scalable design can offer all of the world's consumers an extremely low cost LED disk that has a clean, energy efficient, point source of light with the style, quality, reliability, innovation, longevity, and attention to detail, expected of American made and designed productsOver the next couple of years, I expect NliteN's products to consequently save energy and green our environment, by making energy efficient, non-toxic, long life, lighting cost-effective, affordable, and available, to everyone on the planet. I won't be happy until 2D-Light's technology completely displaces toxic CFL bulbs. To accelerate near-term consumer adoption, a patent pending, grid friendly, load shedding, utility-dimming capability in 2D-Light should result in electric utility rebates, by reducing their spend on additional grid infrastructure, lowering prices of light disks to CFL levels. NliteN is building jobs, stronger economies, and a cleaner, more hopeful future for everyone and plans to do so, worldwide, without resorting to Chinese outsourcing.
