Graybar PowerSmart Contractor Resources

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there is $300 billion in existing lighting that could be upgraded. Clearly, it’s an exciting time to be a lighting contractor with more opportunities than we’ve seen in decades. However, the opportunities can bring a few challenges:

  • How do I help my customer understand the dizzying array of options?
    For example, a Google search on “LED Lighting” will return almost 60 million results in a manner of seconds.
  • How do I defend against the poor quality of lighting that is so prevalent in the marketplace?
    Once again a quick search of “LED lighting recalls” on Google will show over 2 billion results.
  • How do I sell solutions with a higher value and better design to differentiate my company?
  • How do I lead in the new world of controls?

The answer is simple. Contact your local Graybar representative or call 1-800-GRAYBAR and team with our lighting specialists to win more lighting upgrade projects.
