Independence LED Tubes Now Available On GSA Schedule

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Independence LED (, a leading U.S. Manufacturer of LED tubes, announces that their products are included on the Veteran First Energy, LLC ( GSA Contract (GS-07F-073AA).  VFE is a veteran owned small business.  Government buyers can now electronically order the American Made LED tubes through GSA Advantage™ ( 

"The GSA listing is a welcomed benchmark for us and a timely springboard for the government, given the deficit challenges.  Now, the public sector can more easily order the money saving technology that the private sector has embraced. With over 80 products listed, managers can match length, color, end caps and lens types to replace outdated technology and save tax payer dollars." Charlie Szoradi, CEO – Independence LED 

FIVE STARS: The Right Time for the Right Technology

#1: Federal Goal: 30% Energy Reduction by 2015. The deadline approaches. Lighting is 20% to 30% of commercial electricity. LED tubes save 50% or more over the omnipresent fluorescent tubes, helping managers reach their goals.

#2: Buy American. Independence LED moved its manufacturing from China to Pennsylvania in 2010 and meets Buy American qualifications, given substantial transformation of domestic and imported components into advanced LED tubes.  Independence LED applauds the November 30 th 2012 DOE commitment to reinforce Buy American standards for LED tubes and support U.S. manufacturing, energy reduction, and American job creation.  Federal building space is about 3 billion sq. ft. At 40 sq. ft. of illumination per 4' fluorescent tube, there are about 75 million federal tubes.  Switching to LEDs would save $500 million for tax payers, each year.

#3: Advanced Technology. Many imported LED tubes often fail to manage the heat that degrades diodes. Independence LED developed advanced external driver and deep fin aluminum heat sinks that set a patent-pending standard for the new category of High Performance (HP) LED Tubes.

#4: Cost-Effective Guide

A)  Start with longer run time areas for the highest Return on Investment (ROI). B)  Stop buying T12 or T8 fluorescent tubes and ballasts upon failure, and use the opportunity cost to offset LEDs. C)  Request Independence LED's Savings Report software analysis: Paybacks typically come in 3 to 5 years with ROI from 20% to 33%.

#5: Market Traction. Engineers respect Independence LED, and installations range from Fortune 100 companies to the first Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital, plus de-lamping solutions for the U.S. Military. Independence LED has also launched Grant Programs to assist veteran owned businesses, as well as women and minority owned business enterprises.
