Great Eastern Energy and Vanguard Energy Services Form Partnership to Address Critical Energy Sustainability for SMBs That Will Increase Sustainability and Create Significant Energy Savings

New Strategic Partnership Provides Lighting Program Solution to Increase Sustainability and Significant Energy Savings

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2014) - Great Eastern Energy (GEE), a leading alternative energy supplier of natural gas, electricity and energy solutions in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts, announced their strategic partnership with lighting expert Vanguard Energy Services, offering an incentive program for energy-efficient lighting products.

This partnership supports Great Eastern Energy's ongoing push to deliver the latest and most effective energy solutions, accelerate the adoption of LED programs and help businesses meet energy savings goals.

The 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) included a provision to increase the efficiency of light bulbs beginning in 2012. Today many programs offer bulb rebates to achieve substantial savings.

Few businesses know the power of LED technology:

  • LEDs use up to 90% less power than traditional incandescent bulbs with a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, more than 33x longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. In fact, an LED bulb will last up to 6 years under constant use.
  • Advanced LED chips emit virtually zero heat. This LED chip is much more resilient than traditional filaments, which eliminates light bulb fragility almost completely.

As part of the partnership, Great Eastern Energy and Vanguard Energy Services have committed to streamline their energy assessment process thereby enabling business customers to more easily reap the benefits from lighting rebate programs in NY, MA and NJ.

"Combining our small and medium business expertise together with Vanguard Energy Services lighting offerings, opens new doors for businesses to embrace sustainable energy and make a choice that positively impacts our environment," said Matthew Lanfear, Chief Executive Officer at Great Eastern Energy. "Businesses can save 50-70% on lighting expenses at little to no cost!"

"We're excited that Great Eastern Energy has chosen Vanguard Energy Services," said Ivan Zahemski, Founder of Vanguard Energy Services. "We are extremely pleased to work more closely with their energy advisors to provide free assessments during which we build custom lighting programs with a strategic portfolio mix of CFLs, LEDS and other next generation technologies to explore potential saving.
