free for veterans


For Veterans Day, Friday November 11, 2016, Independence LED Lighting is pleased to announce this Free for Veterans program that is an update to the program for veterans that the company launched on Memorial Day in 2014. The Free for Veterans program starts on Veterans Day 2016 and extends through Memorial Day 2017, Monday May 29th.

Independence LED Lighting is an award-winning U.S. manufacturer of Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology. We save 50% or more over traditional lighting, which has added up to significant utility bill savings each month for our clients and over 100 million kilowatt hours saved. The Free for Veterans program has multiple sub-sets to support our U.S. veterans in different ways.

FIVE STAR ways to engage with the Free for Veterans program:

#1: Free for Veterans that own a business or building:

Independence LED Lighting will provide a Savings Analysis free of charge to help veterans that own businesses or buildings determine the economic value and return on investment (ROI) from an LED retrofit. The analysis will help you assess the advantages of Independence LED’s made in USA LED lights relative to your existing lights and relative to imported LEDs, typically from China. Plus, Independence LED Lighting will coordinate $0 upfront cost financing at low interest rates via the Sustainable Energy Fund for qualified companies. The funding typically delivers cash flow positive results from the start.

#2: Free for Veterans that work for a U.S. company:

Veterans that do not own a business, and are satisfied with their current job or career path, may want to help their employer reduce operating costs. Lower energy bills each month through LED lighting will help your employer retain employees and generate more profits for bonuses. You deserve a bonus if you help your company save money each month. Job security is often a concern for veterans as it is for many employees. This offering also includes the incentives in “#1: Free for Veterans that own a business” and commissions on leads from “#3: Free for Veterans that want to make extra money.”

#3: Free for Veterans that want to make extra money:

Any veteran employed, under-employed, or unemployed is eligible, at no cost, to join Independence LED Lighting’s “Lead Provider” program. Lead Providers earn commissions on the Made in USA Independence LED products that are purchased from the lead. The lead can be as simple as an email introduction to an employer, friend, or family member that would benefit from saving electricity. There is no registration or set up cost for veterans to join the program. We have built our business on word of mouth and referrals, so we welcome veterans to earn commissions along the way. We have strength in numbers!

#4: Free for Veterans that seek Job training for a new career:

Many veterans re-entering the civilian work force face challenges matching their skills to the commercial markets. Our “LED Boot Camp” is designed for you. We have live trainings at our operations just outside of Philadelphia as well as webinars and online training. Join us in the Energy Revolution that is shaping up to grow from $4 billion in 2016 LED lighting sales to over $40 billion in just the next three years. For you as a veteran, the training is free.

#5: Free for Veterans that are already in the supply or lighting market:

Many Veteran Owned (VOB) and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) have been in the supply market selling products to government or private sector accounts. Plus, some veteran owned companies are in the lighting market and already ramping up their expertise in LEDs. We want to make it easy for any of you to add our line of U.S. made LEDs to your offerings. With our proven track record, American made quality assurance, and industry leading 10 year warranty, we are excellent choice for your customers. The growing number of bids and Request for Quotation (RFQs) will only increase as President Donald Trump rolls out his vision to rebuild American infrastructure for tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals, and other types of properties across America. If the government is going to buy products, they should buy them from veterans whenever possible, and the products should be made in USA to create more jobs. With this Free for Veterans program, there is no registration or set up cost for veterans, and there is also no minimum inventory level purchase for veteran owned businesses to get wholesale pricing.
