Glikes on Green Electronics
We recently caught up with Richard Glikes, executive director of Home Theater Specialists of America’s (HTSA) who gave us a quick and refreshingly candid interview regarding some of the major trends happening in the industry. Here are some highlights:
Dealerscope: You were just talking about the important role ‘green’ is playing in the consumer’s buying decision. Can you explain?
Glikes: Well we’re getting a lot of conversation from the consumers, our clients, about which products are more green: should I buy an LCD or a plasma; what’s the green philosophy of the company; and that seems to be a tie breaker. It’s unusual because it’s happening more and more. I heard about (the trend) three months ago and I didn’t think it was a big deal, but all of a suddenall of our dealers are getting calls and comments about ‘green.’ We’ve actually just complete a book about each of the companies we work with and what their green philosophy is.
