February 15th, 2012 | Posted in Blog, Bright Ideas, Informational | No Comments

Here at the home office of The Green Savings Company, we field many calls about our product and of course get questions about our competitors. For the customers it usually comes down to two things: having the UL and price. Since we started in 2009, there have been several companies that have also begun selling a T5 retrofit kit. We welcome this competition as it good for the customer, but unfortunately they get bamboozled into believing something that is not true. For example, there are multiple outlets that state on there website that there kits are “UL approved” (there is no such thing) and have even written a press release to this affect. The Green Savings Company has contacted these companies to ask what there UL file number is and they say that it is, “tested to UL standards” or that the number is “UL 935”.
