Energy Squad Offers LED Diet Training, New Revenue Opportunities

energysquad-1213For HomeAV or ProAV dealers looking for some new recurring revenue opportunities or who want to do marketing or branding around GreenAV, Energy Squad offers some interesting programs geared specifically to AV dealers on not only GreenAV products such as automation or energy management, but also on green products that AV dealers don’t typically offer, such as LED lighting or the Nest thermostat. The company, which calls itself a full-service green tech distributor for the AV industry, recently hosted some dealers from around the country for the first-ever dealer training for its LED Diet program.

Introduced at CEDIA EXPO 2013, the LED Diet program provides dealers with a proven sales program that enables them to establish their businesses as the “local authority” on LED lighting and green technology. Certified LED Diet dealers (or as Energy Squad calls them, “LED Dieticians”)  can use the program to reach out to new and existing customers by offering a cost-effective and scalable approach for converting a home or building from an outdated, poorly lit and power-guzzling space into a beautiful, energy-efficient environment, one bulb at a time. Dealers also have access to special product pricing and technical support from Energy Squad.

The two-and-a-half day training included in-depth product demonstrations from vendors including SWITCH lighting, sales training and the formal introduction of Energy Squad’s LED Diet program. It also featured in-depth familiarization with products, including new eco-friendly system solutions from Nest, and an overview of Energy Squad’s ecoInsight app for specifying LED products and creating custom proposals.

Energy Squad announced the dates for its second LED Diet training, which will be held Jan. 21-23 in Bethesda, Md. Space for the second training session is limited and dealers interested can register online here, via phone 301-656-2238 or email at
