ENERGY SAVING for Manufacturing Companies

GRANTS for Manufacturing Companies

Independence LED is please to support fellow manufacturing companies in their efforts to reduce operating costs, increase the percentage of Made in America products, and promote job creation.  Lighting accounts for over 25% of electricity for average industrial businesses, and lighting is often a significantly higher percentage for the warehouses and distribution centers associated with manufacturing facilities. We are pleased to play a role among the nearly 12 million people who make things in America, and our GRANT program is a way to play an even more meaningful role in the American Energy Revolution.
