Light Up Philly Makes it Easy for Greater Philadelphia Businesses and Organizations to Start Saving Energy with LED Lights


This Light Up Philly Promotion for our Made in PA LED Lights is one of the ways that we can extend the energy savings opportunity to regional businesses. Given that the Discovery Network’s Science Channel premiered the How It’s Made show segment on June 6, 2016 featuring our Made in PA technology, we decided to kick off this promotion the next month on the 4th of July, 2016.

Light Up Philly GRANT Inspiration:

Our success has triggered the initiation of this Grant Program for the region that is home to our corporate headquarters and manufacturing. Since lighting typically accounts for about a third of commercial electricity consumption, and our LEDs reduce the cost by 50% or more, every dollar saved can go towards either retaining or hiring key employees. This economic ripple effect for all types of businesses is one powerful way that we can support the city and the region. We love to live and work in Greater Philadelphia and this is our means of giving back. We hope to inspire positive change as a showcase and transform the home of American Independence to the new home of American Energy Independence.
