Going Green Inside & Out
Electrical Distributors and Carbon Footprinting? Really?

by Jerry Yudelson
Awareness of carbon footprinting has been growing rapidly. Distributors beware – many companies expect they will be subject to cap-and-trade regulatory requirements within the next five to ten years...and you could be next. More

Green Channel

Green is officially everywhere now. From a green version of Power over Ethernet to Hilton’s carpet to NECA’s student chapter at Bowling Green State University.

Eco Power

Do you remember fuel cells? They are another alternative energy technology, but not quite renewable. The government hasn’t forgotten: It’s providing $41.9 million in research funding.

A huge inventory is only as good as the front line who delivers it. Each of our product experts averages over 20 years electrical sales experience backed by huge warehouse inventories in New Jersey, Texas and Louisiana. See our products at

Green Data Points

Consumer/voter research finds that the green elements of the stimulus plan are more popular than . . . the stimulus plan itself! Plus, consumers in three big countries like green now more than they did pre-recession. Other Green Data Points include reduced costs for electric city buses. More
