Vu1, a local startup developing a new type of energy-efficient light bulb, said it has raised $5 million from investors to fund its development efforts.
Seattle-based Vu1 aims to market what it calls “electron stimulated luminescence,” which provides the same quality of lighting as traditional lightbulbs. Vu1’s technology doesn’t use mercury, a toxic element that is present in compact fluorescent lightbulbs, the most popular type of energy-efficient light bulb.
The company said it raised the money between August and November. The investors include existing investors and the company’s founders.
