New program from U.S. LED Manufacturer will dramatically reduce operating costs for VA hospitals, give good jobs to veterans and support the Independence Fund

WAYNE, Pa., May 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Independence LED Lighting, the award-winning U.S. manufacturer of superior LED tubes and LED fixtures, announced today the "Honor Our Vets LED Program" to support our veterans. The program includes substantial discounts on U.S. made LED lighting, saving 50% on electricity for VA hospitals around the country. The program will support the hiring of veterans to conduct energy audits and install Independence LED tubes. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Independence Fund, a not-for-profit that gives veterans in need the support they deserve, including track wheelchairs and job-training programs.

Independence LED tubes have already been installed at the Durham VA Medical Center in North Carolina, saving taxpayers over $150,000 (See VA Hospital Case Study). With more than 1,700 facilities in the VA health system, ten-year savings could exceed $1 Billion. Independence LED is now able to offer zero-cost out-of-pocket financing for the Federal Government so that they can easily switch the lights to more modern, energy-saving LED technology without any burden to taxpayers or running over budget. The "Honor Our Vets LED Program" accelerates and increases the benefits to our veterans in remembrance of Memorial Day, at a time where the Veteran Administration could use support from American citizens and businesses.

"Honor Our Vets LED Program is designed to support our veterans and the VA system," said Charlie Szoradi, CEO of Independence LED. "We can dramatically reduce VA hospital operating costs each month, freeing up dollars to help the VA shorten waiting time for heroes that desperately need care. By hiring veterans to audit and install our cost-saving lighting systems, we will directly support our heroes with good jobs. Plus, donations to the Independence Fund for track wheel chairs, and job training programs for U.S. Veterans will help our heroes beyond the walls of the VA hospitals."

"Honor Our Vets LED Program" Highlights:
10% Discount on Independence LED's award-winning 10 year warranty lighting
10% Donation to Independence Fund on the monthly savings
10% Job Training to host Energy Auditing and Installation "LED Boot Camps" at headquarters and in each state where the VA engages in retrofits, plus ongoing webinars and video.

Independence LED has multiple veteran-owned businesses in its sales network and will contract veterans for energy audits and installations whenever possible. Products are listed on the General Services Administration (GSA) Scheduleunder "Independence LED," enabling facility managers to easily purchase LEDs as old bulbs burn out.

Independence LED Lighting is a leading US LED manufacturer and the winner of the 2013 "Best Lighting Retrofit" by the U.S. Green Building Council for the Urban Green Award.
