New Windsor, N.Y. – July 11, 2011 – Orange County Business Accelerator is proud to announce its newest associate client, Synergy Development, LLC.

“The Accelerator continues to harness the innovative minds of the Hudson Valley here in our New Windsor headquarters,” said Orange County Business Accelerator Managing Director Michael DiTullo. “Ruben Estrada, the local company’s owner, has been attending our seminars for several months now and has realized the competitive advantage the Accelerator offers. We’re proud to make him a part of the Accelerator family.”

Estrada recently launched Synergy Development LLC, a Latino and minority owned and operated business, to help meet a strong demand for energy-efficient, environmentally friendly products. LED lighting has been a growing industry over the past few years, given the demand for low-cost, efficient alternative lighting in homes and businesses.

From energy smart light bulbs to fixtures for both residential and commercial settings, Synergy Development, LLC is the authorized dealer of Pharox lighting products including the dimmable LED Pharox 300 and Pharox Flame 300. Both bulbs replace traditional incandescent 60W bulbs, utilizing only 6 watts and realizing major annual savings. Additionally, these state-of-the-art LED bulbs have a lifetime of up to 25 years-plus.

The company offers a variation for pets or property and one for financial records is currently in the development phase. Though the technology is built for the individual, the cards can be a successful benefits tool for Human Resource departments and small business owners to offer employees.
