FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Based in the land of sunshine, where no one seems to actually worry about light, perhaps it is ironic that one Florida-based company is finding a way to integrate energy efficiency and cost savings via a home’s lighting. In difficult economic times, people are always looking for ways to save money without sacrificing too much or changing their lifestyle. Yet, all of this is achievable simply by changing a light bulb.
With the continued economic slump, chronic unemployment, and the general mainstream financial malaise, consumers are on a mission to save money where possible. Add to this sad soufflé the recent increase of energy costs in South Florida and John Q Public has much to gain by understanding the concept of energy conservation while having the additional value of social responsibility. Reckless urbanization has dwindled natural resources of energy and water, hampering the eco-friendly environment so critical to South Florida’s bread winning tourism market and one of the nation’s fastest surging population bases.
Now imagine that people could help themselves not only save money, but actually improve their lives while simultaneously making a significant and socially responsible contribution to the environment, all at the same time? “If it sounds too good to be true,” says Scott Raybin, President of The Green Savings Company, (www.GreenSavingsCo.com), “it’s not; all of this is possible.” Raybin knows what he’s talking about.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, The Green Savings Company specializes in providing a wide range of lighting products that meets the rapidly expanding consumer demand for eco-friendly, yet cost-efficient lighting. According to Raybin, the latest technologies in the design and development of lighting products allows even the least eco-centric person to be kind to the planet while going easy on the check-book. According to Raybin, accomplishing these myriad goals is “literally as easy as changing a light bulb.” With the flip of a switch, The Green Savings Company and its most popular product, the T5 Retrofit Kit (www.T5retrofit.com), helps people reduce their electrical expenses and convert their home or business from a noxious, ozone eating, planet-altering weigh station to a money saving-eco-friendly dwelling or place of business.
Green Savings Company’s flagship product – The T5 Retrofit Kit - dramatically improves efficiency for consumers by using 60 percent less energy to provide the same light output as a traditional T12 fluorescent lamp. “Better quality light coupled with monthly cost savings is a pretty powerful combination,” says Raybin. Over the last few years, state energy rebates and federal tax incentives have made “going green” more appealing for consumers and businesses alike. “We’re talking about real savings,” says Raybin. To prove his point, GSC has created a “green calculator” (www.EnergySavingsCalc.com) that can estimate in under 30 seconds, exactly how much money a homeowner or business owner saves when swapping existing lighting instruments for a T5 Retrofit Kit.
“This is truly one of those rare situations that is a big win-win for everyone involved – saving money, living and working in conditions that are better lighted, which contributes to higher productivity and morale in the work place, reducing the carbon footprint, and being eco-friendly and socially responsible.” The way Raybin sees it, “it’s one of those cases where you hear about something that is too good to be true, and it actually is.”
