Partners in Sustainability: How We Rely on Trade Allies, Electrical Contractors, and ESCO’s
In the quest for environmental sustainability, it’s important to remember that we’re not alone. Though manufacturing and sourcing sustainable options regardless of your industry can seem like a lonely island, sometimes the best work is done in partnership with experts in their own fields.
In manufacturing and construction, lighting often plays a vital role in effecting great environmental change. In particular, these industries’ sweeping shifts toward LED implementation save users thousands of dollars per year while limiting their environmental impact for one or multiple facilities.
At EarthTronics, we manufacture a wide variety of LED products to aid architects, designers, construction teams, and facilities managers in increasing sustainability while decreasing costs. But we don’t do it alone. Our vital partnerships are what make us as a manufacturer just one stop on the journey to a healthier planet.
An ally in trade and sustainability
As part of the The Energy Optimization Michigan Trade Allies program, EarthTronics partners with specific member utilities in the state to serve as a resource for businesses and individuals seeking energy efficient solutions. This network is a valuable resource because it connects like-minded organizations in the quest to provide comprehensive energy-saving programs at a variety of facilities.
As part of the Michigan Electric Cooperative Association (MECA) collaborative, this Energy Optimization program showcases each partners’ commitment to sustainability and ease of use for regional retailers.
The buzz on word of mouth
Despite the infinite reach of online advertising and social media, professionals in manufacturing and construction still rely heavily on relationships built in the field. On each project and order, EarthTronics builds these relationships with skilled individuals, eager to assist their own clients with helpful resources and the right products.
Specifically, electrical contractors are one of EarthTronics’ most valuable resources; with their deep knowledge of the industry and commitment to sustainable solutions, these electricians understand the need for efficient, cost-savings products, no matter the size or type of the facility. Direct referrals from these experts are key.
The perfect partnership
In addition to regional collectives and industry relationships, EarthTronics also partners with entire firms geared toward environmental sustainability. Enter Energy Service Companies or ESCOs—organizations that craft entire projects geared toward reducing energy-related costs—specialize in everything from developing and designing to actually building facilities. Because these firm’s entire missions are based on saving energy costs, they often receive compensation based on their performance over time. This means that they rely on products that deliver on their promise.
That’s where EarthTronics comes in. With a shared mission of sustainability, EarthTronics often partners with ESCOs as their key lighting distributor, providing earth-friendly LED Earthbulbs, fixtures, and lighting retrofit solutions that help them maximize energy savings for their customers.
We’re not alone
Though many in the fields of design, manufacturing, or construction may prefer to stay in their lane, EarthTronics chooses a partnered approach that allows for shared knowledge and a bigger impact. Whether we’re participating in regional programs, following through on a reference from our favorite electrical contractor, or assisting an ESCO in a comprehensive energy-savings plan, our partnerships make us — and the planet — stronger.
Don’t hesitate to contact us today for all of your LED lighting needs, knowing you can trust in our commitment to sustainability and partnerships that last.
