Partnership poised to implement energy efficiency in Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands

A new partnership will bring energy efficiency solutions – namely LED lighting – to the British Virgin Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. GB Energie LED, a minority, woman-owned business committed to sourcing sustainable energy solutions entered a partnership agreement with IMPACT Construction, LLC, a minority-owned construction company located in the Virgin Islands that provides start-to-finish solutions for building and remodeling projects. Both BG Energie LED and IMPACT Construction are likely to be very involved in relief efforts in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, as they are partners of a leading infrastructure company, AECOM, who was chosen to lead relief efforts in these islands. Anticipated projects include installing high efficiency LED lighting solutions, updated fixtures for public facilities such as schools and hospitals, and exterior street lighting. “We’re excited to partner with IMPACT Construction, LLC to aid in the relief projects and provide energy efficiency upgrades, particularly with high-efficiency LED lighting and fixtures for federal and local projects,” said Dr. Gloria B. Herndon, President and CEO of GB Energie LED. “We believe that our experience in delivering high-quality, high efficiency LED lighting solutions, notably Revolution Lighting Technologies, who offer the highest quality LED products in the market today with an experienced, knowledgeable team that is focused on helping our team achieve results on time and within budget, coupled with IMPACT Construction’s local presence and our relationship with AECOM, positions us for unique opportunities throughout the restoration and relief efforts in all three regions.”
