In 1982, while E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was breaking box office records and Michael Jackson’s Thriller was on the way to being the bestselling album of all time, a small lighting control company called SELC was launched in the tiny coastal town of Belmullet, Ireland.
Our goal was to simply build a more efficient and affordable lighting solution. We didn’t set out to disrupt an industry. From smart dimmable electronic ballasts to the first hardened long-life photocells to launching the world’s most accurate solar time switch, SELC has continuously pushed boundaries and broken new ground with street lighting control technology.
Today, we have more lighting control nodes deployed in North America than anyone else. Through partnerships with Itron and Sensus, residents, cities and utilities are able to enjoy the benefits of lighting control technology with the peace of mind that it is built to last.
Although the goal was never to be the next E.T. or Thriller, with millions of lighting control products deployed, we’ve proven that SELC is a driving force in the industry and might know a thing or two about lighting.
