About us


Established in 2004, ERP designs and manufactures energy-efficient LED driver power electronics for architectural, commercial and industrial applications.  Small, yet powerful, ERP products deliver an industry-leading combination of compact size, embedded intelligence, extensive dimmer compatibility, and high efficiency at competitive cost.  Headquartered in Moorpark, CA, ERP owns and operates its own ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility to ensure quality of design, sourcing, production and testing.

ERP Power's LED drivers are small, smart and efficient.  The high power density of ERP's drivers results in power supply sizes that are 20+% smaller than our competition.  The small size gives electro-mechanical engineers the flexibility to design award-winning, creative lighting fixtures without concern for the size of the power supply.  We are fortunate to be the power inside many of the industry’s leading lighting fixtures.  

ERP believes LED drivers are the smart place to embed intelligence for lighting controls to manage ambiance and optimize energy savings.  ERP drivers are programmable to deliver supply chain efficiency savings for our customers by enabling a single power supply to be used across multiple fixture designs by tuning the output parameters to specific LED array requirements.  Beyond lighting - ERP drivers can also integrate with a variety of sensors - over wired or wireless connections - acting as a backbone for access to Internet of Things (IoT) applications.  We call it the Internet of Lights.

Because of the ERP LED driver high efficiency, broad dimmer compatibility, flexible programming, and intelligent controls, lighting fixture design engineers are able to ensure their luminaire delivers energy savings, works with a broad range of dimmers, can be tuned for precise input/output power requirements, and can be remotely controlled by pre-programmed buttons, a building management system, smartphone/tablet, or other intelligent lighting control systems – wired or wireless.

ERP invites you to collaborate with us as we power the future of LED lighting innovation. We are happy to provide electro-mechanical lighting designers with samples of our products; and earn the right to your business by making things easy when it comes to pairing the right driver with the LED components you have selected.
