July 26, 2010
Date Announced: 26 Jul 2010 Oxford, Mich. – Relume Technologies, a leading manufacturer of light-emitting diode (LED) products and smart grid control systems for outdoor lighting applications, was chosen by the City of Canton, Ohio to supply LED light engines to upgrade hundreds of the community’s decorative lighting fixtures. Relume’s retrofit fixtures fit most post top lights, allowing the City to upgrade to high performing LED light engines in minutes, while retaining the relatively costly exiting fixture. The new light engines will lower the city’s energy consumption and the resulting carbon footprint. “Canton has chosen to utilize Relume LED units for our decorative lighting retrofit needs because both the high quality and reliability of the product itself, as well as that of the customer service,” said Daniel Moeglin, Canton’s city engineer. “Their products have played a significant part in Canton's efforts to become a more sustainable community for more than three years.” Relume’s LED outdoor lights use 40 percent of the electricity of conventional streetlights and last up to six times longer. The substantial savings in reduced energy and maintenance costs results in an average payback on investment of less than four years. In addition, the bright white LEDs provide a clear, crisp daylight look for enhanced visibility and safety.“We are excited to partner with Canton to convert its existing street lights to more cost effective and environmentally-friendly lights,” said Rick Nelson, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Relume. “Canton joins a growing list of progressive communities around the country who are investing in their city’s lighting infrastructure to save energy, while at the same time improving the overall nighttime environment.” In addition to the Canton, Relume has implemented LED conversion projects in a number of Michigan cities, including Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Benton Harbor, the Village of Oxford and Pontiac, as well as additional cities across North America, such as Toronto and Arlington, Virginia.About Relume TechnologiesRelume is a Michigan-based company with its production facilities located in Oxford, Mich. and sales outlets in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East.
