Energy Squad’s LED Diet Program Featured on NPR’s All Things Considered

BETHESDA, Md. – February 19, 2014 – Energy Squad, the consumer electronics industry’s only dedicated green tech distributor, and Bethesda Systems, a Bethesda-based systems integration firm, were recently featured on NPR’s All Things Considered as part of a segment profiling The LED Diet program from Energy Squad.

The segment, “In the Dark About Picking a Light Bulb?” followed an Energy Squad-certified LED Diet dealer during a home assessment-turned-installation for a local residence in Potomac, Md. Listeners of the NPR segment hear a first-hand account of the common frustrations homeowners face when trying to purchase and install LED bulbs.

“We don’t know what to do,” stated Phyllis Cole, the homeowner featured in the piece, on her experience with purchasing LED bulbs on her own. “We went to Home Depot and got totally confused.”

When asked if she purchased any LED bulbs, Cole responds, “No. I left.”

As illustrated in NPR’s segment, The LED Diet program from Energy Squad provides dealers with a proven sales program that enables them to establish their businesses as the local authority on LED lighting and green technology, helping them to eliminate common concerns with LED bulbs.

Certified LED Diet dealers—like the one featured on All Things Considered—can utilize the program to reach out to new and existing customers by offering a cost-effective and scalable approach to converting an entire home from an old, outdated, poorly lit and power-guzzling space into a beautiful, energy-efficient environment—literally one bulb at a time.

All Things Considered is NPR’s flagship program and—with approximately 11.8 million listeners—is the most listened-to afternoon drive-time news program in the country.

“Since its inception, The LED Diet has been a tremendous success for our dealers,” said Jon Stovall, founder and principal of Energy Squad. “Having such a decorated and respected news program like All Things Considered spotlight The LED Diet certainly highlights the rising national interest on LED technology and reinforces how the program uniquely benefits both The LED Diet dealer and their customers.“
