Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Cancer has touched many of us in some way, and we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We dedicate our time fundraising for the American Cancer Society, and during the Walk and Roll event, we honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.

The money our team raises helps the American Cancer Society in so many ways. It helps fund innovative research. It provides free information for people dealing with the disease. It provides rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money helps save lives. Consider donating with our team and help advance the cause.

Join us. Donate today. Together, we’ll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.

Chicagoland Electric Association Education Foundation Delivers Gifts to Chicago Area Homeless Families

Due to Covid-19, the Chicagoland Electric Association Education Foundation was not able to physically host our annual Chicago Area Homeless Children’s Christmas Party…… but that did not stop the generosity of the electrical industry. Once again, gifts for each child and their parents along with Nintendo Switches and Oculus games for each shelter were delivered by Santa on December 19th.

Steiner Wins ComEd® Energy Efficiency Program Instant Discounts Leader Award

Steiner Electric is proud to receive the Instant Discounts Leader Award for the ComEd® Energy Efficiency Program. As a member of the ComEd® Energy Efficient Program, Steiner is relied on by ComEd® to educate and train customers in the latest energy efficient LED products to maximize savings and incentives for proper energy efficiency improvements to their facilities.

ComEd® Energy Efficiency Program Instant Discounts Award given to Steiner

“Steiner has done such a great job growing with the Instant Discounts program over the course of the year. ComEd® is very excited to see this growth with such an important distributor in our territory. The Instant Discounts team unanimously agreed that Steiner deserved this award above the other 120 distributors in the program.” – ComEd® Representative, Paul Gongola 

What is the Energy Efficiency Program? 

The ComEd® Energy Efficiency Program was originally established to help customers save money and teach them to use energy more wisely through offering assessments, rebates, discounts, and recycling programs funded in compliance with state law. “We believe everyone has an equal right to safe, reliable, and affordable energy, which is why we offer programs to help customers save energy and money,” said Jane Park, senior vice president of customer operations for ComEd. 

How does it help companies reduce energy costs? 

At Steiner Electric, we work with our customers to help retrofit old lighting technology and redesign to LED lighting – which immediately provides energy savings, as well as providing a more efficient and long-lasting light. Energy savings can typically consist of 50% or greater on a given lighting retrofit or redesign project. ComEd® offers incentives for customers to take action, which helps aid in paying for these projects to be completed.

What are its benefits to the environment? 

Less energy consumed is immediately better for the environment. LED products also have a longer lifespan, meaning less waste thrown away on an annual basis. New LED lamps do not have mercury in them, as a lot of old fluorescent technology did – another positive in protecting the environment. 

Energy Savings Tips Recommended by ComEd®

  • Carefully regulate temperature settings. 
  • Reduce heat from escaping through windows. 
  • Power off any unused electronics during closed-hours or when not in use. 
  • Use less light to illuminate work areas. Only illuminate the space you need. 
  • Power off lights when rooms are unoccupied.
  • Maintain a clear area around heating and cooling vents. 

Disinfectant Lighting Technology Can Help Reduce Germs

Lighting Products that Supplement the Disinfection of Commonly Used Spaces*

The new normal hasn’t been established yet. We’re still determining what everyday life will look like for a functioning society that depends heavily on human interaction. Above all, the world is uncertain as to how long we will need to accommodate for COVID-19. Community leaders and organizations are stepping up to innovate new technologies, with the purpose of helping us safely adapt to this new way of living.  

*STEINER MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THE BENEFITS OR PERFORMANCE OF THESE PRODUCTS. FOR MORE INFORMATION REGARDING THESE PRODUCTS, THEIR APPLICATIONS, DIRECTIONS FOR USE AND OTHER PRODUCT INFORMATION, PLEASE REFER TO EACH MANUFACTURER’S WEBSITE. WHETHER A TECHNOLOGY IS EFFECTIVE AGAINST SARS-COV-2 WHICH CAUSES COVID-19, PLEASE REFER TO EACH MANUFACTURER’S WEBSITE FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.

Introducing Disinfectant Lighting Technology

A concept designed to safely and efficiently reduce bacteria, molds, yeast, fungi, and when applied according to the manufacturer’s directions, this technology can eliminate up to 99.9% of the viruses in a room. Does it kill COVID-19? Good question. That information pertains to the individual manufacturer of disinfectant lighting products. You will need to review their specific statements of qualifications and product specifications (Puro Lighting, Hubbell Lighting, Kenall, Acuity Brands).

Products from these leading lighting manufacturers use different wavelengths, including UV, 405 Nanometer, or 222 Nanometer in their technologies to inactivate viruses and bacteria and to reduce pathogens on surfaces.

Application of these technologies necessitates an understanding of your environment along with other factors. Contact our lighting team in order to receive more information and to establish a better understanding of the key differences between each type of Disinfectant Lighting Technology.

Common Facilities That Use Disinfectant Lighting Technology

  • Hospitals
  • Nursing Homes
  • Schools
  • Fitness Centers
  • Restaurants
  • Grocers
  • Retail Stores
  • Hotels
  • Office Buildings
  • Public Restrooms
  • Mass Transit

22nd Annual Pig Roast – A Customer Appreciation Event

An annual event hosted at our Rockford Branch! Opportunities to network, view great products and watch demonstrations from our suppliers abounded.

Holocaust Survivor Magda Brown Tells Her Story to Steiner Employees and Their Families

On May 18, 2019 Steiner had the honor to host Holocaust survivor Magda Brown for 100 employees and their families, ranging in ages from 12 to 70.  Born in Hungary in 1927, Magda was sent to Auschwitz in 1944 at the age of 17. Magda has spoken to over 100,000 people the past 15 years throughout the country and internationally. Listening to Magda speak was an incredible experience, she is truly an inspiration to all of us and a reminder that we must NEVER FORGET what happened. Hers is an incredible story of courage and strength. Continue reading….

The Purple Winged Warriors’ Story

It has affected us all in different ways, but we will NOT go quietly into the good night…If you think about people in your life, odds are, you know someone who has Alzheimer’s or is affected by Alzheimer’s. It should make you mad, too! There is no cure yet and funding is low – we need to make our voices heard, not only when signing petitions, but by letting families and caregivers know they are not alone. 

Even if you can only give a little, you’re letting another family know that you’re on their side and they’re worth fighting for – memories matter, people matter, family matters, caregivers matter – cures matter!

If you weren’t able to make it to the fundraiser and would still like to contribute, please CLICK HERE to donate.

All donations go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association to help raise awareness for this disease, raise funds for a cure, and support caregivers and families taking care of loved ones who are battling this disease.

Amazing Chainsaw Carver Danczyk Woodcraft Visits Steiner in Rockford

Chad Danczyk of Danczyk Woodcraft is a professional chainsaw carver who creates truly one of a kind custom wood sculptures. This summer, we invited him to be a special guest at our Annual Pig Roast – a customer appreciation event hosted at the Steiner Rockford branch. Danczyk spent a full afternoon on sight carving a hawk and cougar out of a single piece of wood. Although Danczyk was feeling a bit under the weather, he provided us with an amazing chainsaw performance from start to finish. He later applied paint to the carving at his home workshop to complete the sculpture.

View this spectacular time lapse video of the chainsaw carving starting from a 6-foot tall piece of solid wood to a finely detailed work of art.

It was a privilege to have Danczyk demonstrate a chainsaw carving for our guests to enjoy.

Here’s the finished sculpture pictured from different angles. Just amazing detail all done with a chainsaw by a truly gifted artist.

Hers is an incredible story of courage and strength.

Even after experiencing horrendous torture and imprisonment her message was: “Have Faith, Fantasy, Drive and Believe that tomorrow will be better. Next to health, the next best thing is freedom, and think before you hate.”

Reflections from Some Who Attended

Thank you so much for yesterday!  Magda Brown is an incredible, strong person and I consider a hero to mankind.  This was an honor to listen to her yesterday and both Jamie and I just want to thank you and your family for allowing us that time to listen to her story!

Thanks, Tom Zapp


Thank you again for allowing us to participate in the Magda Brown presentation.  Magda really is a living lesson in poise and grace.  Kaelin and I both left on Saturday in a completely different mindset than when we walked in.  I have overheard Kae talking to her friends about the experience all weekend.  She was really moved by what she heard and in speaking to Ms. Brown after the event.

Again, we are very thankful to have been able to come and participate in something we feel is so important.

Dawn Thomas


I wanted to thank you for having Magda as a speaker on Saturday.  I have been thinking about it ever since.  What a strong wonderful woman.  She didn’t show any bitterness which amazed me.  I would be bitter forever.

Thanks again, Bernie Eadon


I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to listen to Magda’s story this past Saturday. Being part of the “last generation” that can listen to and learn from these stories directly from someone who survived the Holocaust, was an incredible experience. The way Magda described her adolescence pre WW2, the Holocaust, and the events that led her to be enslaved at Auschwitz and then transported somewhere in East Germany assembling poisonous gas was remarkable. The vividness in which Magda described the selection process and how she was separated from her mother, was sad, and heartbreaking. Simple pleasures were gone, like a shower, toiletries, shoes, clothes, and basic human decency. The precision in which the Germans conducted the work labor camps, was shocking and disturbing. Yet, throughout all these horrors and atrocities and being poisoned, Magda never lost her faith and her desire to keep dreaming and fighting. The manner in which Magda speaks and keeps her composure is elegant and joyful, to say the least. I also enjoyed her ending and reminding “the last generation” it is our responsibility to stand up to the bullies and make them our friends and to understand their point of view. They may have a broken home, or their own shortcomings, and may have been taught to show intolerance to different viewpoints and cultures.  Magda reminded us nothing is black and white, except for what is right and wrong. There are good people and bad people in this world, but there are always more good people than bad. A key takeaway from Magda’s story was “Next to your health, freedom is just as important”.  This mantra resonates loud and clear, especially when paired with the poem Magda shared with the audience. We must not allow history to repeat itself and we do this by sharing Magda’s story with our friends and family.

Sincerely, Elmer Jovel
