Energy Squad has vetted and cherry-picked the best brands in LED lighting, smart thermostats, energy storage, and energy management so that the ProSource member can get any of these products from one place. At CEDIA Expo 2013, Energy Squad launched its “LED Diet” (www.theLEDdiet.com) concept, designed to help consumers ‘slim down’ on their energy usage, while creating new opportunities in lighting for integrators. The LED Diet is a structured dealer training and promotional program that features a duffle bag full of more than 30 LED bulbs that integrators can take to their customers’ homes to illustrate firsthand how wonderful LED light can look, while educating the homeowner on LED’s money- and energy-saving benefits. Energy Squad offers both online and on-site trainings to get integrators and dealers quickly up to speed in the category.
“Energy Squad is excited to be a supplier for ProSource. The green tech category is very dynamic right now, and it’s great to see the group taking a progressive stance to help its members get involved,” says Wayne Ortner, Director of Sales for Energy Squad. “Because Energy Squad was launched by a leading custom-integration business with a similar background to that of many ProSource dealers, we understand what they do and how to help them develop this extra revenue opportunity. We expect great synergy between ProSource and Energy Squad.”
