Distributors Going Green


A week or so ago we reported that the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) had hired a consultant to lead them into the "Green" market. There seems to be a great deal of interest in all things green. This report was listed in today's version of The Electrical Distributor Magazine on-line.

CLAMORING FOR GREEN—an April 29 Reuters report, which TedMag stumbled across only recently, noted that “building maintenance supply company W.W. Grainger says…customers are clamoring for the energy-efficient lights, high-efficient water faucets, and even waterless toilets it sells…Grainger’s sales of such products rose 20% in the first quarter from a year earlier, compared with a 7% revenue gain overall, a company spokesman said.”

I suspect that distributors in nearly every line of trade are looking for ways to put an energy saving spin onto some of their products.

Many of our distributors have added our product to their portfolio and basically started a separate division of energy saving products.

Proven technology such as ours at www.energysavesolutions.com is in white hot demand in almost all areas around the globe.

Keywords such as "Save Energy", "Save Electricity", Energy Conservation" have huge monthly search numbers on almost all the internet search engines.

Very interesting Blog you've started here that hopefully will gain exposure and many others will comment.
