Wisconsin company unveils new lighting technology

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin manufacturer has debuted new fusion technology in solar LED light fixtures that can be used in commercial and industrial applications.

WLUK-TV reports that Energybank officials say that while the new technology looks like a typical light fixture, it doesn't convert the power so lights last longer and are more cost-effective. The Manitowoc-based company has been working on the technology for years.

The technology separates users from the power grid so buildings can be lit independently. A phone app can also be used to measure the amount of power needed based on the sun's current location.

Gov. Scott Walker says the company continues to be a leader in technology.
