The Safety Source provided a free no-cost, no-obligation proposal and once approved handled the application paper work in order to secure the largest energy rebate available from DTE Energy. The lighting project took three weekends to complete. The Safety Source worked around the hectic ever changing production schedule at this facility.

The LED upgrade resulted in the following savings, improved light levels and maintenance costs avoidance. These LED fixtures have a 100,000 hour life expectancy and come with 5 and 10 year manufacture warranty.
"The Safety Source offered a turnkey solution and handled the rebate incentive paper work with DTE Energy assuring we captured the maximum rebate for this project. We secured the rebate which covered 35% of the project costs allowing Magna Seating Detroit to realize an 11 month ROI. I can with all confidence recommend The Safety Source, LLC to provide excellent sales, solutions and service."
