Flip the switch to energy-efficient lighting

This new TAB Green Guru Guide is perfect for do-it-yourselfers interested in energy-efficient lighting. The book shows anyone using residential or commercial lighting how to implement upgrades to reduce energy costs while maintaining or even improving the quality of the lighting.

Green Lighting includes methods for calculating payback and return on investment, and a complete source for energy-efficient products available worldwide. 

"I am delighted that my coauthors and I were invited to present our new book Green Lighting at the upcoming Green Market Exposition. I used to live in downtown Bridgeport, and it is very exciting to see this sign of green rebirth in what was formerly one of America's great cities, and which now has the chance to reimagine itself as a leader in promising clean technologies. I look forward to learning more about greening Park City, the rest of Fairfield County and beyond. Hopefully efficient lighting can be a small part of that transformation, since it provides one of the best ROIs of any technologies."

The Green Market Exposition has grown into a two-day event, which features over 45 exhibitors, along with panels, workshops, seminars and speakers which focuses on supporting a green market economy and promises  to provide everyone who attends a wonderful learning opportunity that supports the promise of a green future.


The GME offers green job training and employment opportunities, green job career paths, as well as providing information on how to save money and energy; affordable products and services which will help people learn how to live economical and sustainable lives.
