NEWINGTON — The Lighting Center at Rockingham Electric is a regional leader in home and commercial lighting products. It boasts a knowledgeable staff and large selection of indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures and accessories.

The Lighting Center’s success could be attributed to its commitment of bringing the highest quality sustainable products to its customers.

“We won’t sell something that we wouldn’t use ourselves,” said Jim Pender, Owner of Rockingham Electric and The Lighting Center.

This company believes that it has a social responsibility to give its customers access to products that will save them money and also be gentle on the environment.

In that vein, The Lighting Center is offering a special promotion to Green Alliance members from Earth Day, April 22 - 27. Show your Green Alliance card with any purchase and receive a 2-Pack box of Bulbrite Eco Halogen Bulbs (retail value $4.99.) These light bulbs are an eco-friendly alternative to Incandescent bulbs. They are compliant with the Energy Independence & Security Act (EISA) and can be used for residential and commercial applications.

The Green Alliance is a Portsmouth-based consumer co-op and business union that connects eco-minded consumers with local businesses and nonprofits who have made sustainability a central part of their business model. The Lighting Center is a partner in this alliance, and is a certified green business due to its commitment to sustainability. Pender has made a conscious effort to carry only products that have undergone careful quality and efficiency evaluations. Pender's energy efficient efforts are also applied to the business's daily operations. All delivery personnel are on a strict no-idling policy with company supply trucks. A member from Rockingham Electric performs regular energy audits on the outlet store to ensure that operations are keeping up on efficiency.

Managers are held responsible for their department’s energy use and waste. This creates a culture of accountability, making employees more mindful of their day-to-day choices. In fact, The Lighting Company employees have become sustainably minded in many other facets of their daily operations: from recycling used company materials and ink cartridges, to volunteering with local non-profits.

Their charitable involvement includes donations and/or volunteer time to local organizations like the Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, the Seacoast Home Builders & Remodelers Association and the Pease Greeters, as well as larger charities such as the Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots and the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Stop by The Lighting Company to browse its extensive selection of eco-friendly lighting products! And don’t forget, Green Alliance members, to come by on Earth Day April 22 - 27 and receive your free box of Bulbrite Eco Halogen bulbs with any purchase.
