We recently welcomed LED Partnership back as a member of the WVCBA community!

For buildings that have not yet upgraded their lighting from old-generation lighting to LEDs, this is the perfect opportunity. Rebates can provide LEDs at no cost or at such low cost that energy savings cover the cost in a few months.
