What does President Donald Trump’s Buy American, Hire American Executive Order mean for you?
We are pleased that the Trump Administration sees the value in supporting American manufacturers and creating more jobs for Americans.
On Tuesday, April 18, 2017, President Trump signed the Buy American, Hire American Executive Order that will generate a positive impact at many levels. Our Independence LED Lighting team has been working on this since the 2016 Presidential Primaries, in an effort to encourage our leadership to reinforce the provisions of the Buy American Act (BAA). In short, US government agencies will now have to adhere to the intent of the BAA, by purchasing US made products.
The US Federal Government uses a massive 3.4 billion square feet of real estate. By changing their lights to US made light emitting diode (LED) technology, the annual savings will be over $1.1 billion, with over 20,000 new jobs and over 11 billion lbs of CO2 emissions reduction. As one of the very first authentic US manufacturers of LED lights, Independence LED Lighting is energized to continue delivering cost-effective results in 2017, with our 10 year anniversary, and beyond.
US taxpayers – The reduction in government waste on lighting electricity and maintenance costs will add up to more than $11 billion over the next decade.
Job Seekers – Careers in the growing American Energy Revolution will increase at new levels for a diverse range of engagements from production to installation and from sales to account management.
Veteran and Minority Owned Small Business Contractors – New opportunities to fulfill government lighting retrofits will create revenue.

Environmentalists – Changing outdated lights to energy saving LEDs is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce CO2 emissions. Since LEDs save 50% or more on energy, burning less fuel cuts the greenhouse gas output at the power plant levels.
Business Owners – You can lead by example in your market sector. The payback with LEDs is typically under three years, and companies like Independence LED also offer $0 upfront cost financing, lighting service contracts, and Energy Saving Performance Contacts (ESPCs) for the private and public sectors.
