US small businesses helping each other get through a tough economy while simultaneously offering a unique solution to the marine industry.
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
Two marine-industry leaders in LED lighting and safety controls announced the formation of the Marine Industry Safety Energy Affiliates (MISEA) Group. The MISEA Group (pronounced: "My-Sea") unites Orca Green Marine (OGM), and Signal Mate to create a single one-stop solution center for making a boat as safe and energy efficient as possible. The MISEA Group's full line of harsh-environment and navigation light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and safety-control solutions enables recreational, commercial and military marine users to be safe on the water and save money in the process.
Whether boaters are looking for a way to live aboard off-grid for long-term voyaging or simply want to spend less money on fuel, the MISEA Group provides consumers with LED lights, safety monitors and controls innovated, designed and manufactured in the United States. Even better, the MISEA Group, in conjunction with other companies in a Yacht to be Green™ consortium, will launch a new initiative in the coming months that enables the conscientious boat owner to implement the safest, most efficient energy plan afloat quickly and affordably through a Renewable Energy Specialist program coordinated with more than 175 local riggers and boatyards nationwide and centralized through a single website: http://www.miseagroup.com.
“It’s about small US businesses coming together and helping each other get through a tough economy while simultaneously offering a unique solution to boaters faced with increasing costs of enjoying their time on the water,” said Meghan Matthews, founder of OGM and principal in the MISEA Group. “This alignment allows us to offer broad energy and safety solutions to our boat builder customers as well as a streamlined business relationship with our wholesale distributors and retailers.”
The MISEA Group’s Yacht to be Green™ RES program enables boaters to get a custom audit by a local installer certified by the MISEA Group's energy experts. The audit criteria lets boaters know what their energy demands are based on their lifestyle, and also how those demands can be met in the most economical and efficient manner possible.
In the coming weeks, boaters can visit the MISEA Group website (http://www.miseagroup.com) for a list of Yacht to be Green Renewable Energy Specialists and to qualify for a free audit. Once the audit is complete, the MISEA site will allow them to determine which options best fit their budgets and provides discounts on installation of the MISEA products by a certified local rigger or boatyard.
“This is only the first phase of our vision for the MISEA Group and the Yacht to be Green consortium,” says Matthews. “One of the inspiring aspects of our industry is the capacity to work together to make a difference.”
