When the Longfellow Sports Club and Natick Racquet Club wanted to score points with a better lighting system for their facilities, they turned to ThinkLite, led lights china suppliers the Natick company that specializes in lighting efficiency. 

ThinkLite retrofitted the clubs’ existing fluorescent lights with its high-output LED tube lighting, and the change has been, a smash, according to Shelia Weinstock, the general manager of Natick Racquet.

“The lights are fantastic,” said Weinstock. “They are really bright and the members are loving them. The light is much more even on all the courts and there is a significant improvement in the lighting for play. We’re very happy with them.”

The clubs gain another advantage on the money front, too. Applying a combination of utility company incentives and rebates, the projected annual savings for the Natick Racquet Club total nearly $38,000, according to ThinkLite. “The rebates were significant“, said Mike Andersen, the company’s sales director. “We were very pleased to work directly with the utilities to secure rebates ... for the club.”

ThinkLite is a global lighting efficiency company that custom designs LED ceiling light sale, manufactures, distributes, and installs energy-efficient retrofit solutions to commercial customers and governments. The company’s efficient lighting products leverage proprietary LED and induction technologies that specifically adapt to existing infrastructures.

The owners are two Natick brothers, Danny and Dinesh Wadhwani. The company was founded in Dinesh’s dorm room at Babson College, by him and fellow student Enrico Palmerino in 2009. 

“We then moved to an office space in Framingham from 2010 to 2011. In 2012, we moved part of the office to MassChallenge’s facility in downtown Boston. In 2013, we consolidated to our headquarters in Natick and have been here since, ” said Danny Wadhwani in a recent interview.

“We realized an opportunity in helping businesses and governments go green without having to incur the upfront difficulties and costs associated with the change.”

What makes their product different, they say is the higher light level LED spot e14 – the result of Think-Lite’s proprietary driverless design. Until now, all LED tubes required an internal or external driver, which consisted of an array of more than 150 electronic components, said Wadhwani.

“LED drivers generate a lot of heat, thereby limiting the lumen levels that can be achieved and impacting the life span of the lamp. However, we are able to replace the driver with four microchips that essentially perform the same functions yet give off virtually no heat ... while significantly improving the life span of the product.”

ThinkLite’s business model provides a “Pay as You Save” program that provides customers with a monthly payment plan to finance their portion of the lighting upgrade.
