LED Roadway Lighting Ltd. technology to shine in Australian market

Date Announced: 01 Apr 2011

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada -- LED Roadway Lighting Ltd. (LRL) fixtures will soon be lighting up streets and roadways across Australia, thanks to a new partnership between LRL and PECAN Lighting Ltd. (PECAN), an Australian based street lighting company specializing in solar applications. Together, LRL and PECAN will bring energy efficient and environmentally friendly lighting solutions to the streets of Australia.

“LRL is very pleased to be working with one of Australia’s leading green technology firms,” said Charles Cartmill, founder and CEO of LRL. “It’s always exciting when you enter into new markets in different countries. We look forward to working with PECAN, in introducing our highly reliable street light fixtures, and helping cut down Australia’s greenhouse gases (GHGs) and reducing the country’s carbon emissions.”

In addition to the environmental impact, the introduction of LRL’s LED-based lighting fixtures in conjunction with PECAN’s solar and non-solar applications will deliver substantial energy savings to Australian clients.

“It’s a great pleasure to be working alongside Mr. Cartmill and the rest of LRL, in bringing greener alternatives to Australia,” said Terry Cooke, General Manager of Pecan Lighting. “With the introduction of our street lighting fixtures, Australia will largely reduce its energy levels, save on energy and maintenance costs and Australians will benefit from living in a cleaner and healthier environment.”

Last month, LRL and PECAN completed their first project together in Adelaide, South Australia. Today, LRL’s fixtures can be found in more than 250 locations in 11 countries.
