Who We Are.
ERP Power designs and manufactures full spectrum tunable color light engines and small, smart, and connected LED drivers. Established in 2004, and headquartered in Westlake Village, CA, ERP owns and operates its own ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility to ensure quality of design, sourcing, production and testing.
What We Do.
ERP Power brings accuracy, control, and consistency to see everything in a whole new light. People can enjoy engaging, interactive experiences with light that improves productivity, perception, and comfort. Research shows LED lighting is the most commercially-viable approach to reducing energy consumption and utility costs nationally and globally.
Our industry-leading tunable color light engines, precision power drivers, and connected controls capabilities offer extensive dimmer capability, wireless connectivity, programmable outputs and high efficiency–all at a competitive cost. Our products are rooted in the expertise of ERP co-founder and CEO Michael Archer, who changed the computing industry by designing ever-smaller power electronics for notebooks, desktops and servers from companies like Apple, Dell, HP and IBM. Now, we’re focused on illuminating and powering what we call the Internet of Lights.
