PowerSecure’s new family of LED-based street lights seeing strong marketplace adoption

Date Announced: 17 Feb 2011

Wake Forest, N.C. – PowerSecure International, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWR) today announced its new family of LED-based street lights is seeing strong adoption by utilities and municipalities. Over the last several months, over 30 electric utilities and municipalities have purchased PowerSecure’s new area light, called the “SecureLiteTM”. SecureLite provides utilities and municipalities with an energy efficient, environmentally friendly, low maintenance alternative to traditional 100 watt HID lighting.

SecureLite delivers a 67% reduction in energy usage compared to a traditional High Pressure Sodium area light, extends the lighting life three-fold (to approximately twelve years), and provides increased reliability to reduce utility maintenance costs. In fact, the light has been engineered to deliver 30+ years of service life, including the ability to replace the LEDs in the unit. Additionally, SecureLite was engineered to deliver a better quality of light that enhances visibility, minimizes light pollution, and is Dark Sky compliant. SecureLite incorporates PowerSecure’s breakthrough proprietary dusk-to-dawn control technology which maximizes its efficiency and reliability.

Additionally, PowerSecure announced today that it has introduced two new LED-based street lights to the marketplace, including replacements for traditional 250 and 400 watt HID street lighting. Called “PowerLitesTM”, these lights incorporate the same superior engineering as the SecureLite, designed to deliver utilities and municipalities a strong combination of efficiency, environmental, and maintenance benefits for higher wattage applications.

PowerSecure’s area lights and street lights are available through PowerSecure’s EnergyLite business unit, which can be found at www.energylite.com.

Sidney Hinton, CEO of PowerSecure, said, "We are excited about the pickup we are seeing in our new SecureLite area light product. The light is demonstrating strong appeal from utilities and municipalities due to the returns on investment it can deliver them through reductions in energy and maintenance cost. Importantly, we are receiving very positive feedback about the quality of light it delivers, and the ease with which it can be installed. On the heels of this initial success, we are very excited to introduce our new PowerLite products to the market, which are designed to deliver the same high-quality, high-efficiency, low-maintenance solutions to our utility partners for higher wattage applications.”
