“I strongly believe in sustainability. LED lighting is the best choice for every business, environmentally as well as financially.”– Michael Viggiani, CEO & Founder
Go Green LED International is a solutions-based company focused on expert service and cutting-edge technology and products that can result in a 50% to 70% energy savings for our customers. We are pioneers in the field of sustainable energy and lighting and our principle is simple: to promote energy conservation and emission reduction while delivering significant cost-savings.
Incandescent and fluorescent lighting require regular maintenance, resulting in lofty energy payments and the need to recycle toxic chemicals. The time is now for upgrading your dated, energy-consuming lighting systems.
Go Green LED International is a one-stop shop — we’ll conduct an on-site audit, work with you to select the best lighting products while coordinating government-rebate funding, and provide expert service and support during and after installation.
